Super Resin Polish vs Auto Finesse Tripple

What are people's opinions on these two products? I see some people say that Tripple is a PDI polish, and this makes it less 'superior' to SRP. Would this be true?

I have an entire collection of Autoglym Pro products as well as an entire collection of Auto Finesse products. Really, I'd like to stick with one brand for OCD sake

The SRP vs Tripple debate is the one that I feel swings it for me, because with a black car I am forever noticing new blemishes appearing, no matter how well I take care of it. So a decent AIO is really important in between correction details for me

They're both going to do a certain amount of cleaning and filling, so will help with the unforgiving black finish.

They both offer a certain amount of protection, the SRP is acrylic resin, the Tripple is from wax. Both really want a "proper" LSP putting over them to last any length of time. SRP is more flexible in this regard as it can take both a wax or a sealant; Tripple's protection being wax based ideally wants to be topped by a wax, although I have read that AF say you can put things like Tough Coat over it.

What he said...

Protection from these two is short lived...I remember it was about 1-2 weeks from Tripple so not very much. They both have to be toped with a wax or sealant.

I'm not worried about protection as I always top AIO's with a wax or sealant. I was more curious to know how well either of these perform in terms of their cleaning ability, filling etc.

if you have metallic flake then tripple does mute it a little bit.
better off with prima amigo if you can get it leaves a dark finish and enhances the flake on my black metallic

What has happened to Prima Amigo? It seems rarer than hens teeth.

Was never that impressed with amigo. Even disappointed after all the hype it got. It didn't really cleanse the paint very much. Didn't think it filled as well either. Did leave a lovely slick base though.

SRP and tripple performed similarly but tripple slightly better results. application wise I preferred tripple.
