Almost out of Griot's One Step Sealant and before I buy some more sealant looking to see if anyone's ever compared to it to some of the brands I see on Autogeek (i.e. Klasse and Duragloss)? I've been pleased with Griot products, but I'm interested to know if someone's used them both and can provide their thoughts. Thanks.

Groits makes some great stuff, you may get some subjective views about either stores. Klasse AIO and SG should be a staple in any detailers bag of tricks, if you dont have a bottle yet, grab one of each.... you'll end up using AIO on all kinds of jobs, its amazing stuff and comes off just as easily as it went on. The original (pre-ban) formula of AIO was a better blend, but the new formula works just as well and gives amazing results. AIO works just fine by hand but really shows its potential with a PC. Its a chemical cleaner, not an abrasive so dont expect it to do much cutting, but its great for light polishing and cleaning.
If youre looking to experiment with a few new things, try out some of Prima's line of polishes and sealants. Their Banana Gloss is one of the best quick sealants I've used.

I just spent last weekend detailing my truck with Griots products and I love the way it turned out. It exceeded my expectations! It was my 1st detail and took me 5 hours that included washing, claying, and applying the onestep sealant. For my the finish was exceptional.

Thanks for the recommendation. Still undecided b/t Klasse and Autogeek...need to figure out before it gets warmer! Would also like to use on our camper, and both line of products will work.

I'll help you decide...... just buy a bottle of Klasse AIO and be done with it, you wont ever be sorry. Or if it'll make you feel better you can buy me one and I'll tell you how good it would have worked if you had kept it for yourself. :)
You'll love Klasse, try the SG too (silver bottle), it works extremely well with AIO.

You are a good man to make such an offer...although for this round, I'll just buy for me but will keep you in mind next time. :)

I'll agree with the AIO/SG suggestion from Jumbo. It's a awesome combo and will outperform all products from Griots.
FWIW, I have never tried *any* Griots products. They do look interesting and flashy, but they seem to be marketed towards the "more money than sense" crowd. You can get the same if not better results from other, cheaper brands.
