Mothers is developing a new pre-softened (not my favourite form, prefer ol'skool hard-cake paste :) ) paste wax under the FX label.

As those who've tried it know, FX liquid wax is an excellent product (bettered by Reflections IMO).

Here's a beta-test thread on Mothers Waxforum.

FX Pre-Softened Paste Wax - Wax Forum

Seems to be trim-friendly too! :woot:

Someone needs to step it up a few notches for a quality OTC nuba paste wax at a affordable price.

So Alfist you are saying the Reflections line is better than the FX line on Mothers lineup?

That's also where he came from. ;)

Not really. *Better* regarding appearance is a personal preference thing. *My* preference is for the Reflections look. Has more of a carnauba look to it for a sealant. More depth. FX is more bright and blingy. Some prefer that look.

As far as durability and ease of use, they're very similar. Both trim-friendly. Both great sealants.

I'm a big fan of FX liquid. It has a bright, reflective Zaino-like look, albeit with a bit less durability. Very interested in the wax.

Easier (and cheaper) to use though.

Thanks - I'll try them, especially the spray wax, looking for something new in that line.

So it's basically Mother's trying to play catch-up with Meguiars NXT2.0 paste. Neat.

Fun stuff! I can't believe it comes with a free applicator pad! That's amazing! That right there pushes me over the fence. Gotta get me some! :LOLOL

I want some. I'm a big fan of Mother's products.

I think they'd sell a lot more if they renamed the FX series to Mother's Intense Luster Finish line. MILF for short. Think of all the young guys that would buy it just based on the name :P

But seriously, I want to try this stuff out. It probably will be a very similar product to NXT paste, but I bet it'll look nice with the California Gold Carnauba Paste.

I wonder if the applicator is foam or MF. I didn't think Mothers had any foam applicators. And I don;t really like MF applicators because they gunk up from the wax very quickly.
