+1 for Brian. I don't see how any product could possibly be better than what he has to offer, let alone at the best price out of all of them.

Ask Redeye, he just launched his boat on asphalt at 70 MPH and says that there was not a scratch in the product he used, but the grass rake and willow guard did not do so well in the guard rail. :violent1: Guess he used his product in the wrong areas. :slap: :lol: :lol: :lol:

How about this, fiberglass hull only,,, make your own. Its easy and you can experiment. For a one time application buy it, if you need it slick more often, then make your own. For metal hull Seaflex or Steelflex, my preference would be Seaflex. good luck

I used steelflex and steelflex 2000 on aluminum hulls. Then run frog spit. Now I run quickslick. All on aluminum hulls. Quickslick all the way. RUN THE BEST OR PUSH WITH THE REST.
