    I would't worry to much about what claybar you use. What ever you can get locally is fine. I use a zanio claybar but that's only becuase it came in the kit I bought.

    Thats what I use. More than likely, it doesn't do as good of job as real claybar, but its really easy. It takes alot less time.

    I use Meguire's, you get two smaller bars instead of one big one like most other's...

    and BTW, not to say that the ICE liquid bar doesn't work, but I did a quarter panel with it, then hit it with a traditional bar, and there was a lot of resistance still, so while it's definitely worth using in comparison to time/energy, it isn't doing the same job.

    Any of the clay bars you can get at the local autoparts store will work fine. Claymagic is the least expensive and works great.

    For the money, definitely Clay Magic. I find it as good as some more expensive ones I've bought

    did you get the kit wehre it came with the detail spray?

    but great point how they have 2 bars for the kit

    ((((((( tip before clay baring))))) if they only include 1 bar, split the bar in half and use it in future claying, or is just a good way to insure if you drop it on the ground and small pebbels get on first clay bar

    I like the Zaino or Adams claybar. Adams is my favorite though. Great products.

    I just bought and used Clay Magic and it was $11 at AutoZone. It worked great. It was cheaper by $7-$8 than all the rest because it doesn't come with any way or polish. That was fine with me because I used Zymbol.

    I think thats how Ice liquid clay works best..
    I use it as a body scrub and it does work well this way but not by itself as you would use a real clay "bar".

    A claybar is a claybar IMO. You're not really gonna get a different result from different brands. I've used different brand claybars in the bast. Right now I have a container of Zaino claybars and they really don't any better or worse of a job then the other brands I've used.
