Ammo Hydrate

What kind of experiences you guys have from this? Is it better than QD when drying your car. Does it have that X-factor? Need something that helps to prevent drying swirls.

Better than detail spray. Its like lotion for your paint. Plus it ads protection. I'm from the old school of always adding protection on paint after a wash.

I really like it, it's a lot thicker than c2v3, but I like the look of the car after using it.

Does it really helps prevent drying swirls?

Drying swirls are caused by your drying technique and the cleanliness of the microfibers etc being used.

I have Exo as my LSP and use an open hose to sheet the majority of the water off the car. I then use a small cordless blower to blow water out of grill openings, mirrors and wheels etc and I can then mop up any remaining water with the smallest of microfiber cloths.

This technique results in virtually 'touchless' drying that eliminates the possibility of inducing swirls whilst drying.

Basically what Alan said, a lot of it is how to dry the car, get GOOD quality microfibre towels and that will help, also if you're drying outside you run the risk (as I do) of dirt getting on your car which won't help your cause.
