Sonus Ultra fine claybar..

I have just opened my Sonus ultra fine claybar (green in colour) tonight to use it for the first time..

It is by far the best claybar I have ever used. It lifts tar of in one sweep and it is really easily shaped in the palm of you hand.

Out off 10 it scores 10.

Other claybars I have used with my marks out of 10:

3M - 5/10 (too hard, I think its use is more for overspray)

Swissol - 7/10 (much better than 3M)

Megs - 3/10 (Might as well have used a bar off soap)

What does everyone else use?

Does anyone agree or disagree???

Comments?

Wow. A totally different experience to mine.
I found the sonus clay to be way too gentle to be effective, multiple passes required to lift tar. I was so brassed off with it I got my Swissol bar to take tar spots off. I'm not talking about caked on stuff either.

I found the green fine clay very good too, although not for too rough a surface, I did my whole roof with the Sonus green fine clay and it worked very well but it wasn't that rough, I have Swissol clay too which I use for rougher spots.

It just shows what a difference a clean car can make...

The sonus bar worked out perfecly for me... The swissol bar being the second best.

BTW I used a large bucket of warm water with a little soap in it to help the clay glide. It made things easier with such cold temps ATM.

I too have had one sat in my goody box for the last few months, just need to find time to use it.

From what I understand, it is designed for those who feel they must clay more than 2-3 times a year, so by its nature its not "too" aggressive".

Yup, but I was surprised how gentle it was.
