New Glass 2

Anyone use this product? I see the ad in Blue Water Sail mag.
Is it similar to Poly glass polish?
the advertizemnet is of course ' no work, easy on, several coats, great shine'
for 40 or 50 dollars a quart it might be a good deal.
would like to here from someone who has used it.
thanks!

Do a forum search for Newglass.... it's been discussed before.

The concensus here seems to be that it's an inferior product to Poliglow - that it yellows visibly in a relatively short time.

We have been using poliglow for some time, and are happy with it except in the cockpit area - it seems to pick up sunscreen oils, and in high traffic area it seems to discolour and go smudgy-looking. It's easily cleaned up with poliprep, followed by reapplication of poliglow, but it's something we had to do several times this summer.
