    Over the years Meguiars has had some bad clay. Really bad!Recently Meguiars has reformulated their Detailers line and the clay is also brand new. The yellow clay is gone, so is the sticky white stuff.

    They have three clays now, a new white very fine clay for retail sales and a blue meduim and redish /orange more agressive clay for the pros.

    I was given samples by Meguiars and their new clay is excellent. I go through three to five bars a month so we use a lot of clay and I really like the new stuff.

    It maybe a little hard to find now as the old stuff is still in the dist. system, but soon it wil be everywhere.

    I just got the Pinnacle clay kit in the mail and used it the other day - worked pretty good

    I`ve used the Meg`s `new` blue clay. It comes in a black jar, weighs 200 grams, and works quite well.
    Still nothing wrong with the widely available Clay Magic product...

    I hate Meguiar`s clay bars with a passion! I bought one to try and it took me longer to get the clay residue off the car than it did to get the car cleaned! And before you Meguiar`s freaks flame me...yes I used plenty of lube, it was cool out and I was in the shade.

    thanx for the replys im not going to buy anymore megs clay bars .. they all suck just like 2001 said .. they leave a mess .. im going to try a claymagic or poor boys bar .. z man clay cleans bonded contaminents and crud off of your clearcoat so that the clear coat can provide the shine it was meant to. its kinda hard to explain. but get a good clay bar and the lube that goes with it and use it like the instructions say and you will see what we are talking about .. theres a few posts going on about clay so check em out . ron
