Anybody tried Victoria - Hybrid Wax? Tell me what you think

Hi there.

Basically the title. I wonder what people think. I havent tried this wax yet although i hoping to soon. I havent seen much info or reviews for this wax.Its a really tough choice if i should go for this or a pure sealant like tough coat.. sigh so many choices haha (i have a metallic silver car by the way)

I just wondered what people thought, whats durability like? is it as good as vics concours (which i have found great).

well thats everything. If you have tried it then please share you thoughts. Im really interested to find out what people think. I cant wait to try it soon hoping that it would make a good winter lsp.

Its a good wax.
Its really is a hybrid,it looks like a sealant with a nauba in it.
looks very nice and glossy on solid colors like white and silver,
not that much on dark and hot colors.
application not as easy as other vics waxes,and one panel at a time with a quick wipe is required,this stuff is drying rather fast!.
all in all its a nice wax,but as a victoria fan im not very excited.

see for me id have to disagree with you about the application and removal there, i have a jar myself and have used it a couple times, it may not spread as far as my vics concours but its just as easy on and off, i found the finish very nice on my dark metallic blue paint, not quite that of concours but still very good, agreed youll have to do one panel at a time, but wouldnt say it cures any quicker than concours, its definatly a keper in my garage for my winter wax along with my ***** glaze

I quite like the new vics hybrid and the other halfs car is wearing it at the moment, can't say anything about durability just yet but looks wise its very pleasing and application was also easy, granted it is considerably harder in consistancy than any other vics product i have used but did spread well and was a little more forgiving on the cure time on the panel before removal, all in all great product and exellent value for money

I applied Victoria Concours and Victoria hybrid on the bonnet 50/50 last week , I can't say anything about durability . As msb said the hybrid harder in consistancy , it gives nice finish .

Thanks for all the feedback.

Milan, i look forward to hearing more about the 50/50 between the two. I have to say i loved concours. I know its said that sealants normally suit silvers, but that wax was simply stunning, so easy to use and loved the finish.

Anyway ive taken the plunge and ordered some hybrid, so im looking forward to seeing it stand up as my winter wax, fingers crossed it will. I must admit i currently have coli 476 as my winter wax which is great for durability but i just cant enjoy applying it or the finish as much as vic's. That said i also have a largely unused tub of bouncers 22 which although good i found it didnt compare to Concours.

I put collis on the partners car, a few weeks before switching to vics hybrid and the finish was so much nicer with the vics, brighter, and less flake muted

Is Vics Hybrid rubber/plastic rim safe or leave white stains there?
