15 comments on Product Review: Pinnacle Souveran Paste Wax

  1. Jon says:

    They now offer a 3oz mini for 39.99 on sale so if you dont want to throw down a full $95 to see if you like it. I used souveran for a long time before I traded it off and I liked it alot..gave a extremely wet look and darkens paint some. It attracts dust like crazy though and I think 4weeks would be pushing it for durability if it was outside. 5-6 weeks on a mostly garaged car might be right but I think under 4weeks for a daily driver that is outside majority of the time.

  2. Roger says:

    Thanks for the review.
    I too am a Souveran paste fan (for years). I’ve tried many waxes, some in the $200 range, but always come back to Souveran. Even if you must apply a coat every 4 weeks, it’s very easy and pleasurable. I’ve had occasional problems with the plastic container warping…that would be my biggest complaint. The 3 oz. mini is way to try it and looks like that container bottom might be made out of a stiffer plastic… like Blackfire wax?

    Jon…
    You’re definitely right in that 4 weeks is for a garaged car that gets driven almost daily. If it’s a daily driver that spends most of its time outside, then I agree it’s probably 3-4 weeks on one coat of wax. I have noticed however that doing multiple coats helps extend that durability. For example, if you apply one coat and most of it is gone in about 3 weeks, applying another coat at that time would probably make it last about 4, maybe 5 weeks. Might not be true for all applications obviously, but that’s what I noticed with the wax.

    Roger…
    I have yet to try the 3oz mini one so I don’t know how the container is made, but I’ll be sure to recommend it to clients as a good way to try out the wax before spending the money on a full jar.

  4. Jon says:

    I will let you know. My Mini jar is due for delivery tomorrow. I wonder if it will be glass like the mini fuzion jars are.

  5. Roger says:

    Jon, please let us know about the jar……the pics look like the bottom part is clear like Midnight Sun and the Fuzion mini.

  6. Jon says:

    i got my jar in..its the same jar they use for the Fuzion minis its a glass bottom jar and a fairly thick lid. it screws o nicely and doesnt feel as weak as the full size tub lid was.

  7. Roger says:

    Thanks Jon. I don’t know why they don’t use this type of jar on the full size Fuzion and Souveran…it’s so much better.

  8. Scott says:

    I’m surprised you get that kind of durability out of PS. My friend uses this wax exclusively on his two cars one is red and the other is a Civic painted in BMW’s Seapang bronze and while it makes those cars look great we have both noticed that it is basically gone in about a month. I have trying to get him to layer it over a sealant but he doesn’t think it would be worth the time money and effort. Nice review though, I have been considering trying the PS21 100% after your other review.

  9. Daryl Pennington says:

    Please recommend a wax for lighter colored cars

  10. Daryl Pennington says:

    would you be able to apply PS21 100% with a polisher

    • Scott says:

      Daryl,

      I have tried apply a paste wax via PC7424 and it went smoothly. I just didn’t care for taking it out of the tin and putting it on the pad. You can lay down a really nice thin smooth layer easier I think, but for me I just do it by hand. I really like the red CCS applicator for paste waxes myself. Hope this helps.

  11. Ivan Rajic Ivan Rajic says:

    Darryl,

    I really never experimented with many waxes used on lighter colored cars, so I couldn’t make a good recommendation. At the same time, I do like how sealants give lighter colors that candy coated look, so I may be a bit partial to that.

    As for the P21S application with a polisher, I have seen some people take it out of the tub and apply some onto a fine pad, then use a random orbital polisher to apply the wax to paint. I myself always apply and remove waxes by hand, so I can’t speak for how easy or hard the application via polisher may be.

    Hope that helps.

    i have been looking at this wax on and off for some time but like everything money. if i buy this wax should i use the menzerna sealant (i use now) or would this be covering up a good wax.
    thanks for your time
    Chuck

    • Ivan Rajic Ivan Rajic says:

      You can definitely use the sealant before you put Souveran on the car so you can have a bit extra protection with the sealant. I do that all the time on my personal vehicle and as long as you let the sealant cure for a few days there will be no bonding issues.
