    Eagle one wax as u dry versus bass boat saver?

    Is one better than the other or does one provide better protection than the other?

    I find them to be very similar. Eagle One seems to make it a little slicker to me. Personally, I go with whatever I can find cheapest.

    to best honest, I can't really tell the difference between the two except for the smell.

    Eagle 1 seems to leave my boat looking slightly glossier.

    Eagle One does a nice job, so does Bassboat Saver. I use both from time to time. Bassboat Saver does a lot better job of cleaning than the Eagle One.

    there are differences in the products. theres a thread around here somewhere. seems the difference was something about some being a cleaner and not having uv protection?

    Use them both and I also think Eagle One seems a bit slicker. I do like BBS much better on the seats though.

    As stated above I like to use Eagle 1 on the boat and bbs on the seats. I've had real good luck with Chemical Guy's "After Wash" just spray it on after pulling the boat it cleans and shine's awesome.

    Have used Bass Boat Saver for years and have been very pleased.

    Each will leave some streaking on dark colors. Lucas Slick Mist won't.

    Does Lucas slick mist have equivalent UV protectant properties in the formula compared to BBS or Eagle One? I def see streaking using the Eagle product

    I have and used all three mentioned products in this post and I find them all very similar when it comes to gloss but I do find that the slick mist makes the boat very slippery and I really like the smell of bass boat savers. It's all personal preference.

    slick mist does provide uv protectant but not sure how much compared to the other two.

    I think bbs cleans better than either eagle 1 or slick mist. All three do a good job of making it easy to keep clean when used often.

    Bbs by the gallon is usually cheapest, but the other two are easier to find. Really just a toss up to me.

    I went from BBS to Slick Mist and then Wax as u Dry. I settled on Wax as U Dry because:

    1) I think it does a better job
    2) It contains carnauba, which is a UV protectant
    3) It is friendly to the aquatic environment (one of the members here on BBC who is with Valvoline and an avid tourney fisherman, helped develop the product)

    Let me add that I always have a couple of coats of Pro Tec sealant underneath
