Seen them, seems a good idea. Got enough "normal" clay to use up.

I like it
But I would NOT use it in the way he did in the video
"Wash with one side ..flip over and clay with the other"
WITHOUT RINSING FIRST???
Like Shaun..I have plenty of clay to use up before I buy one

Will stick with my 12 clay cut into 8 pieces. TBH once you have clayed your car once it rarely needs doing again.

Yes..Too expensive
Bilt Hamber Soft Clay and some soapy water is all you need
This should be done prior to a repolish
So for me..Twice a year

Odd, i just saw the how to clay video by ammo, the guy used a few sprays on the body and clay and no marring, yet when i did it i marred the hell out of my paint.

Take it crap clay then.

Not used that brand. Use plenty of lube will reduce risk of marring. Also if its hot the clay maybe too soft, again risking the chance of marring.
