But the problem is, it doesn't last. After 2-3 coats, it will last about 2 weeks (only having driven her a handful of times). You can begin to see swirl marks again and the mirror-like finish seems to just go away.
I've heard of several others on the forum mention the somewhat short longevity of Zaino, and it seems more and more people are trying Pinnacle with good results. My question is this...for those who use Pinnacle, how long does it last? And if you've used both...how do they stack up?
Any/all opinions appreciated.
PS -And if you're using Pinnacle, which product has given you the best results.
For swirls, your best results will come from using 3m Swirl Remover on the finish to get them all off, then use which ever product you think looks best.
I recently had to change from using cotten towels to a synthetic chamois. The problem was the towels would cause swirl marks, where the chamois does not. I am sure it had something to do with washing the towels in the washing machine, I have hard water. I also started using micro-fiber towels to remove the wax (opposed to using a cotten towel)
Since I have started using Pinnacle products, and dropped the cotten towels I have not seen any increase in the swirls in my finish.
I always love this conversation, because most have never tried Pinnacle but have a preference of Zaino. Its not a preference unless you try both, then its your game. Both are great products and both provide remarkable results.
Zaino will last longer and is extremely reflective, however, Pinnacle Soveran provides more depth and a wet look. Try both ...... then make the decision , but for most of us we never see a durability issue with either product because we are always outside cleaning our Vettes. :cheers:
I have used both dozens of times and Zaino lasts longer. As for appearance, that is a personal, subjective choice.
No flames intended, but if you have used both dozens of times, how in the world do you know how long they last?
I have three cars. I take excellent care of all of them, but don't wax them any more than I need to. Just not enough hours. I waxed my Tahoe with Zaino probably 8 months ago, and it still beads and protects the surfact better than any previous product I used after one month. And it sits out during the day in Houston's God awful heat in the summer.
No, I have not tried Pinnacle. It may be a good product. I just wanted to share my testimonial to how long Zaino lasts. Even the Pinnacle distributors seem to admit that long lasting is not Pinnacles strength.
