"Wizards Products" wasn't
the first name that came to mind when we were thinking
about a list of manufacturers who specialize in motorcycle wax,
polish and cleaners.
But hey -- what do we know?
We've only reviewed about
75+ different products that can be used to keep a
motorcycle clean, shiny and looking good.
Truth be told, we're pretty
jaded when it comes to this stuff. Most of the
claims are way overstated and many of the "boutique"
products cost way too much and provide no better results
than many commercial formulas found on the shelves of
the local Big Box Mart.
So we've been pretty
judicious when it comes to trying a new concoction.
But when more than a few webBikeWorld visitors suggested
we take a look at Wizards Products, uh, products, we took
We ordered up a mixed batch,
consisting of Wizards Shine Master Polish & Sealant;
Wizards Supreme Seal Paint Sealant
from the paint polish department and some
Wizards Power Seal and
Wizards Metal Polish (treated
cotton wadding) for the metal bits. We topped off
the order with some
Renew, a black plastic trim cleaner and a bottle of
for those quick detailing jobs.
Wizards Products actually
makes several more specialized formulations for cleaning
and polishing, and many of them are labeled for use on
And guess what? We're
impressed! We've finally found a true competitor
to our all-time favorite,
Glare Professional Polish.
The combination of
Spider swirl remover and
Glare Professional Polish has consistently given us the
best shine and protection of any motorcycle wax or
polish we've tried, and it's become our benchmark for
comparisons, so finding an equivalent is pretty
In our opinion, the combination of
Wizards Shine Master and Wizards Supreme Seal Paint Sealant
yields an outstanding shine on most painted surfaces, with a coating that feels
like the metal is wrapped in a very shiny plastic.
And here's a bonus: the combination also seems to reduce spider web
scratches, the bane of vehicle paint and clear coat
It also seems to do this
with slightly less muscle power than the Glare Spider
and Professional Polish combo. We've tried the
Wizards products on three different bikes and also on a
car with a beautiful custom paint and clear coat finish
that had developed some fine spider web scratches.
We estimate that on the
surfaces we treated, about 85%
of the fine spider web scratches have disappeared,
leaving only the deeper scratches that would probably
only be removed with some serious professional power
Note that an evaluation of
motorcycle wax, polish or cleaners is very subjective;
it's impossible for us and just about anyone else to
conduct "scientific" testing to truly compare these
products, so you'll read some pretty squishy words to
describe how these products work.
Also, we've pretty much given up on
trying to photograph before/after results of these
products, because it's nearly impossible to capture an
image that shows the true differences. Instead,
we'll provide a description of each of the Wizards
Products (they don't use an apostrophe) polishes we've
tried and our impressions.
"Odor Aware" Francine Fishpaw types take note!
Shine Master has a strong "fruity" aroma that I find
overwhelming. After we treated two motorcycles and
a car in an open garage, my eyes were burning and
continued to bother me for about 24 hours.
I've since become very
sensitive to the aroma of Shine Master and Supreme Seal
(which has a very strong "grape" and "fruity" aroma.
I had to remove the clothes I was wearing and put them
in the wash to get away from the smell. I'm
normally not allergic, but I am slightly sensitive to
perfume and other smells. I sure wish they'd lower
the intensity of the smell in their products.
Our Eminently Subjective Ratings: 1 = Don't bother; 2
= Limited usefulness; 3 = Works as advertised; 4 = Very
good; 5 = Excellent, best in class.
