Fireball Fusion v WA Quartz or Vortex

Looking to purchase Fusion for its wet finish and gloss rather than durability but is it too close to either WA Quartz or Vortex to call.
Any help appreciated
Thanks
Dave

I’ve used Quartz but not Vortex. For me Fireball Fusion is better than Quartz. Fusion is one of my favourite waxes. Ease of use, finish and best of all performance.

Not sure that many will have tried all 3 of the waxes Dave to be able to answer your question.

I've always wanted to try Fusion but never got round to getting hold of a pot.

If you've got any WA Show Gloss I reckon Vortex as a base topped with Show Gloss would be a cracking combo.

I preferred Vortex to Quartz. It was easier to apply and had better water behaviour. Quartz is very impressive though.

I haven't used Fireball Fusion but I have heard great things. I wish John (Forensic Detailing) had done a follow up on Fusion. He did with Enigma, when he did the Angelwax visit/brand review.

I think Fusion is slightly easier to use but Quartz is more durable with better water behaviour. Can't comment on Vortex.

Not used fusion but i get the impression it's going To feel something special. I didn't think it was supposed to be overly durable though?

Quartz is a nice wax to use, but not to the same oily spread forever nature of vortex. But Quartz is incredibly durable and great water behaviour and seems to last well when others are starting to drop off.

I'd imagine the application of fusion is like vortex, and vortex has the performance of Quartz but with double tile price tag.
