Beading, Is it really a good thing?

I was listening to an older Ammo NYC podcast with Larry and Jason Rose, they were talking about coatings and in general protection. Jason Rose made a very good point I found interesting to note about a protection beading like crazy.
He was saying people seem to believe that the better the beading properties of a wax/sealant/coating the better it works, but in fact its the opposite because the last thing you really want is big beads of water sitting on the paint especially when the sun hits them. He believes a last step product that sheets all the water off the paint is really a better protector. I thought it a good point as i see so many posts from people being disappointed in a product when it doesn't bead like mad.
Whats peoples thoughts on this?
Anyone agree or disagree?

Head says sheeting whereas aesthetically like to see beading...what was said in the podcast you mention makes sense to me.

Beads roll off the paint so they're good to a certain extent and way better than flat water. But yes, a product that sheets in the first place is best

I'd always choose sheeting over beeding. Everything seems to be geared towards beeding. Last thing I think I saw sheeting was some srp , with no LSP on top for a change

Beads that dry cause waterspotting meaning unnecessary work next time its washed. Also if ' ts "dirty rain" then you end up with Sandy spots in car.... not good

I've been saying for a good few years that I'd like a 'coating' brand to step up to the plate and produce a product which offers very little in the way of beading but incredible sheeting characteristics...still waiting - if enough people make some noise about it maybe someone will investigate further

Doubt it summit. Too many weekenders rave about the heading. Take that away from them and they wouldn't have anything to take pictures of

Thats what Jason was saying about coatings and the American market. As he was at Megs at the time and was saying they wouldn't release a coating until perceptions of beading being good could be changed, as far as im aware they haven't yet released a coating. Definitely a lot of 'weekend peeps' get to hung up on the beading lark.
Does anyone think opinions will ever change?

Then we would photograph dry cars in the middle of a rain storms

I must admit that beads look great on a car but at the end of the day i choose sheeting over beading as it is more important in the long run.

You can wipe your car with olive oil and get better beads than most of the waxes but thats not really important.
