What products to mix with Sonax BSD other than V07 ?

As the title states other than V07 what are some good QDs to mix with sonax bsd to make it easier to use ?

I have tried with plusher towels etc but can't get along with the BSD alone. I much prefer how it works mixed with v07 but I'm just wondering if anyone has found a cheaper alternative than v07 to give the BSD a slicker less grabby feel ?

Finish kare fk425 or powermaxed quick detailer works quite well.

Tried it with a few others and most help to better the feel but then don't feel any different to a normal QD. None are really quite as melt into the paint whilst retaining the beading like BSD / V7

I've tried the poor mans version using CG speed wipe was good but not as good as v7 I don't think.

Also tried ag Aqua wax worked well.

Great thread, Im gonna try BSD mixed 50/50 with Megs LT so you'll get the Protection and Beading from the BSD and the Gloss from LT
