    I'm guessing most of you don't buy a lot of Polish Angel products? They have a soap that's 30 dollars for 1 wash. Their stuff is great though there's no denying it.

    Your backhanded sarcasm, and assumptions about other members preferences is getting a little tiresome.

    All forum members are entitled to their own opinions. If you happen to disagree, do us all a favor and do so in a respectful manner.

    AGO (unlike most other forums) is prided on all of its members trying to be helpful and POLITE.
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    I’m not sure this matches the thinking of the audience who wants the premium/best products regardless of cost. It may cost 30-50% and only perform 5-10% better, but for those that want the cut above and have dough, it’s worth it. This is no different than the clothing industry, car industry, etc.

    Re: Pinnacle Black Label Compound/Polish

    I see it like food some will pay $100 for 28 day dry aged USDA PRIME Ribeye from a upscale steak house, I would. Is their a ďbigĒ difference than buying a USDA CHOICE from the store, wet aging it and tossing it on the grill. To me, yes although not night and day. Iím a live to eat guy. A eat to live guy would think Iím stupid as he would never spend that on a steak.

    Thing is it makes a difference to ME. Let the cheapskates buy their Beadmaker and the money burners buy their cosmic spritz. Just donít judge the other guy for doing what he wants.

    Youíll never TELL me beadmaker comes anywhere near cosmic.... and Iíll never TELL a Beadmaker guy wou should buy 16oz of Cosmic over 5 gallons of Beadmaker.

    We should all be happy we can argue over silly things like car polish.

    For the record though.... $32 for 8oz of polish?

    BWAHAAHAAA!?

    Iíll have the answer later today, once I put together my initial review... Itís funny you mentioned this because the same thing crossed my mind. I even went ahead and matched them up head to head and without spoiling I can clearly say without a doubt there is a difference between these 2 polishes.





    The Pinnacle Black is like dressing up for prom and riding in a limo. The other is like a married couple staying in watching Netflix and eating Burger King.Pinnacle Black Label Compound/Polishlol.

    Maybe thatís extreme, but youíll see what I mean and why itís not far off...

    Aye like you said, we all have our things... At the same time I donít care if youíre loaded or not, we all love a bargain when it comes to certain things right? Nothing more satisfying than our inner cheapo scoring a deal... Meanwhile on the other hand weíre probably all guilty of treating ourselves or our loved ones to only the best.

    Youíre willing to spend top dollar for certified prime beef at a streak house and so am I.. I can also think of a bunch of things Iím cheap at, for example buying toothpaste. Iím strictly Aqua Fresh and part of the reason is because I buy that at the 99 cent store.Pinnacle Black Label Compound/Polishlol.

    But then I go buy 2 freaking emblems for $100 dollars.Pinnacle Black Label Compound/Polish



    $35 bucks on 16oz. of Pinnacle Leather Conditioner. And IMO its the best leather conditioner Iíve ever used. To me itís worth it.



    Iíve got alot of detailing products that are pretty expensive on my shelf and all but 2 have been well worth the price.

    Also keep in mind that things usually last a pretty long time... Iíve been working on these same 16oz. bottles of Griots for 3 years! [the Fast Correcting Cream is running low]



    Sorry for the long post but even this sometimes cheapo guy can understand thereís a target audience with some of these products. The same way some detailers find a target customer for their $1,000+ details.

    Or maybe thereís guys who enjoy treating themselves to what they like and prefer... i.e. fightnews.

    Plenty of choices for everyone.Pinnacle Black Label Compound/Polish

    Re: Pinnacle Black Label Compound/Polish

    I am not saying they are but the PBL polish and compound look similar to the Pinnacle compound and polish. The colors are the same and their consistency looks similar from a side by side comparison.
