Any of you guys heard of this product. There's a video where it's being applied to a brand new 17 Orange CVO SG. Check it out.

I have watched the video.  It appears that it works on both denim and glass finishes.  Still a bit skeptical if I'm being totally honest.

Yeah, I'm the same way. Skeptical about mist everything.

Don't get your hopes up.  There are literally hundreds of products out there making the same sorts of claims, and there really aren't hundreds of new secret formulas for super sealants and polish.  At least this one doesn't try to make you believe it lasts indefinitely, like some claim.  But at 3 to 6 months between applications, this one is no better than those other products including the ones you can buy off the shelf for $10 per 16oz container, instead of $60 per 16oz container for this one.

  To anyone that has an interest, Ordered the TopCoat on 3/7, got a confirmation same day of receipt for my order and was told that it takes about 72 hrs to process due to "High Volume" and it is now 3/14 with no notification of shipping.  I guess that the garage is kind of full or they are waiting on their still to produce the product.

So you only get 30 days to see if the product meets all those lofty claims.  Since it's supposed to last much more than 30 days, how exactly does that work?  I'll be waiting to hear from the first person to try to get all their money back.  Let's see, shipping fees are not refundable, and you have to pay to ship the product back to them as well.  Then there is a long list of requirements and conditions on their site which means most refund requests won't be approved.  This is typical of places selling miracle products btw.

I've been keeping up with them on Facebook and it seems they have been overloaded with orders. That's what they have been saying to all posts pertaining to lengthy waits on orders. A couple have confirmed finally receiving their orders and they are extremely happy with the product. I really think they were ill prepared for what was coming. By failing to prepare, you're preparing to fail. That's what coach always told us. Lol. Good luck man.

One more of those and you'll be qualified as an expert!  :P

Not judging.....jusayinzall    I speak from experience.....having been married 5 times.  But the first one doesn't count.  I got married and divorced in the same drunk.....it was 9 months apart but still the same drunk.  :drink:   I've slowed down a bit now......been 30 yrs. and 4 months since I've put a drop of alcohol to my lips.....funny, slowed down on the marriages too.   :zroflmao:

How will you be able to tell if it "works" or not?  Plan on doing a double blind test with other products, or does "works" just mean applying it and seeing if it shines?  That test can be passed by much cheaper products found anywhere.

100HP it has been a while and haven't seen an update, so did you ever get the product?  So is it the greatest thing since sliced bread?  Like you said I am one of the those guys that like to give the benefit of the doubt and will try something new (once at least) a try.

Assuming that it works, but about the same as any other wax/polish.

Well I'll let you know how it works. I have had Top Coat for 3 months now. I only use it on my bikes. I actually love the stuff. I do get a shine like nothing else I have ever used. I keep my bikes clean so I reapply every month or so. I can't say it makes the bikes any easier to clean but when they are clean you really notice it. Yea it's pricey for sure but, I am so happy with it I am ordering a gallon of it this week. Oh and when I ordered the stuff it took a while to get. One of the guys at work ordered it 2 weeks ago and got it in less then a week.

I hope I helped you all spend some more of your hard earned cash!!!

I just received mine order last week. I pad $60 for full sized spray bottle, mini travel bottle and 2 microfiber cloths. I applied a quick coat saturday, but did not have time to buff it as instructions say. It rained on my ride, so I am going to re-apply today. I can tell you this, the rain on my windshield beaded off twice as good as it does with rainx. Bike feels smoother and water beaded pretty well in some spots, some not so much, I think it was because I didn't complete the application as the instructions call for. I'll let yall know once I apply it correctly.

I ordered some about 2 months ago. Took 2 weeks to receive order. I bought a new 2017 F250 that i used it on. I clay barred the entire truck. Then applied Top Coat per instructions. Al thou it goes on easy & comes off easy the shine was good. But after about a week the slickness was gone & back to normal. After washing with only water i reapplied it again. I now have at least 4-5 coats on it & water doesn't bead up & bugs still are hard to get off.. I wouldn't recommend it, may as well just buy some good ole Turtle Wax. I also use it on my bike with same results..

Thanks for the report.  Same as I have seen other places.  Initially seems to be great.  After time, just another $$$ wax.

I had this stuff ready to hit purchase then decided to google harder for reviews, they're mostly the same disappointment expressed here. A good wax will do better than any of these miracle products. I've been using Collinite 845 on my stuff, really like it, and it lasts.

With winter approaching, it is the season for The New Next Greatest Bestest Wax/Polish of All Time Ever No Fooling We Promise and it only costs 4 (or more) times what a regular wax/polish costs because it is the GREATEST!

Or maybe will be 2018 before it appears.  But one will appear, it will cost a buttload, and it will promise things that sound almost unbelievable. PT Barnum smiles, no doubt.

Yeah, used it twice now, like spraying water on bike and it washes right off. No value whatsoever for $60

I just saw an advertisement on the internet about this product.  It looks like it has been around a few years, but this is the first I've heard of it.  Does anyone have experience with this product?

Everyone who decides to buy any of the newer miracle Paint Sealant products, please read the available information on them before buying them and being disappointed. I had a guy at dinner last week get mad because he thought a unnamed product from Autogeek, that I have used, he hadn't, was similar if not superior to sprayed on clearcoat paint from the factory and would NEVER wear away.
This is just not true. It will not protect from rock chips it will help protect from bird crap etc & it will make a nice shine and make dirt & bird crap come off easier, for awhile, then it won't, until you apply it again.
A good product of properly applied pure carnuba is still an amazing coating and costs a third or less of polymer products.

Sorry for the new thread.  Just saw one from awhile back.  I ordered a bottle, we'll see if it's all blow and no show.

Cowboy

A lot of blow, almost no show IMHO. Just a huge marketing ploy. Stuff goes on like water,never hazed up for me like instructions said and provided NO ADDITIONAL protection whatsoever. Was a nice shine on bike.....Until I rode it to end of driveway and got it dirty. $60 for this stuff is a waste

I just used Top Coat F11. My initial impression is wow. Shine is deep and surface is very smooth and slick. A friend that stores his bike in my garage bought the stuff so the price is at least right for me. I will update later and tell you how well it holds up

Remember the folks who make expensive wax do no recommend regular car wash soap. They say if you don't use the uber expensive ceramic wax spec soap and ceramic spec detailer in will degrade the product completely.
Check out youtube.
Thing I got from this is soap that won't remove normal wax will remove ceramic sealers. Hum...

I don't go for all these super duper high cost spit resistant rain repellent right hand on left hand off secular application products.
I use two products that I find cover all the requirements from rain beading sticky bug spit wipes off with a dry cloth.
For the paint I use Turtle Wax gloss it gives a good deep shine, for the chrome I use Grease Lightning just spray some on a cloth and it will do the hole one side.
It all goes a long way for around 50/60 for both cleaners.
Have had the same bottles for 3 years now and I clean my bike once every two weeks sooner if I've been on a long run.
If you're looking for a good cleaner I'd recommend trying these two out.

Every year or two another wildly overpriced "miracle" product hits the market, and another bunch of people fall for the fancy prose in the ads and buy it.  The reason people keep coming up with and selling these scams is that this country is loaded with easy prey.  Even after reading hundreds of negative reviews and warnings from people who actually know something about the subject, many still hand over their money for the modern day equivalent of snake oil.  If anyone wants to know why it seems crooks from around the world mostly target people in the USA, the answer is obvious.

If it sounds too good to be true, assume it is.  Or better yet, consult with someone who actually knows something about the type of product being offered before blindly sending money to scam artists.

Many years ago ran a warehouse, next building over a company sold airplane wax.  Basically was a softened carnuba wax in a flat can.  Couple of guys came over one day & gave me 2 cans.  Best stuff I ever used for longevity & had a decent shine, a PITA to apply when compared to more conventional wax.  It was not that expensive, used it for years.  Several companies make carnuba wax products, including Turtle wax.  If you have the time & don't mind "wax on, wax off efforts" it's reliably good stuff.

Do you remember the name of the airplane wax?  Looking for something good for the plane.

Had to Google to find it.  It was called "Slipstream" and manufactured by Classic Wax in Arlington, Texas.  It was sold by Western Auto stores.  all out of business as best I can tell.  It was moderately priced, went on easy enough.  Had to use some elbow grease to remove the film but the shine lasted a very long time.  Bugs came off easily, good slick surface.

Attached a couple of pics I found here & below.

Have used Classic Deep Crystal Carnauba by Mothers & it works ok.  My experience with Slipstream was in the 1970s & 80s, nowhere near as many products on the market back then.  I recall the sales pitch the Classic Wax guys used - carnauba lasts longest and they used a "softened" version which made it easier to apply.

Somebody else may know of something better out there, good luck on finding what you need for your plane.

Tried it once, I have a couple of bottles that I would sell!!  Royal Blue is a much better detailer and a lot less $.  Don't bother with this product is my recommendation.
