Default In your opinion what is the best wax?

I have been using mothers wax for the body, and mothers chrome polish for the chrome, I do get really good results, but is there anything that really stands out that you have used.

Personally, I use a miriad of stuff.

Zymol tends to be the best cleaner wax but it is hard to get off if you let it sit too long.

TW Ice is good for the in-between jobs but not for sole wax purposes... its also good on black trim.

I use TW Wax as You Dry each time I wash the car.

I wouldn't use marine wax on my truck. Marine vehicles have a gelcoat, so the wax is made for gelcoat, vehicles have clear coat. Probably not the greatest thing to use.

As for me I just use the simple Megs NXT 2.0 liquid wax. I have always liked the shine I get from it. I use a lot of megs products though so I'm kinda swayed that direction, mostly stuff from their professional line and not off the shelf items.
