Guys - I've made a couple of formal reviews over on DW:
http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/forum/s ... p?t=165869
http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/forum/s ... ost2136388

... the Achilles Prep also contains a couple of mini-reviews for Orions Shield and Artemis Wax Seal.

The results:
Achilles Prep - 85%
Orions Shield - 55% (probably should be less)
Artemis Wax Seal - 75% (oddly, should be more)
Poseidons Carnauba Wash - 50%

I had the thought of my milwaukie firing up @900rpm may of been an issue but then ive never come across a polish that has not worked with the machine perfectly.
It would seem that maybe its either a very slow rotary, DA or by hand user.

Yeah, that's about the sum of it - the let down is that "normal" speed rotaries seem to be left our in the cold. Very impressive by hand, though.

Hmm think I'll give the Poseidons product a miss, still thinking about Achilles at the moment for a good hand polish.

Basically, ValetPro do two lines - the "house" line and the "mythology" line. I didn't think Poseidons Carnauba Wash was up to the "mythology" line, but might well be perfect as part of the "house" line.

I've had a long chat with Greg about Poseidons Carnuaba Wash. I have offered to taken on testing and feedback for improving the shampoo and ... not putting words into his mouth, got the impression he'd be keen to get it all the way there.

Achilles Prep is good. Artemis Wax Seal is really good. Orions Shield is so-so, but when topped with Artemis Wax Seal strengthens the overall finish, so has its place as part of a routine. I could happily use Achilles Prep and Artemis Wax Seal as a normal "AIO and wax" routine.

Nice one ... have fun :wink:

I think my only comment would be to use half the recommended amount of the shampoo, if not even less. I would be interested in what you think of the finish from the shampoo on its own after a week and then the difference after a spritz down with Citrus Bling. I think there'll be enough in the CPT sample for two washes.
