    Zaino is still a very big name. A lot of new sealants are excellent though. It really comes down to what you like. I recently used menzerna powerlock and it's very very slick and durable. Should be a solid 4 months of protection even in the weather... maybe more if it's garaged. Again though, it's all about what YOU like.

    I guess I like Zaino because it protected my 350Z back in 2003 from scratches when I hit a rusty square rough pole in a covered garage. Got a dent but no scratches! Just smudged my 11 coats of Zaino!

    There's a thread on the net somewhere that I had read where a guy actually put 51 coats of Zaino back to back on his car. He lived over in England IIRC and the car he bought I think was a single stage paint, so he wanted the extra protection. I don't think Opti-coat, Cquartz, hardbody or any of the supersealants had been out at that time because keep in mind that 1 layer of OC is the same thickness as appoximately 100 coats of wax and MUCH more scratch resistant. Hardbody appears to be extremely hard as it's name suggests, but Opti-coat overall still appears to be the most durable of all the others out there (this is based on some very high dollar detailers such as Phil from Detailers Domain who sells both products so he has a very unbiased opinion of them. Some people ultimately just like the look of a certain product though, so they just stick with what's worked for them in the past.
