I've purchased 4 bars of this fine clay and I finally suffered through the last of it. I exclusively use Dodo juice lube with claying. Pros: Reasonably priced. Cons: Very stiff clay, hard to form into a workable disc to begin application. The clay will typically break down at about ½ to ¾ through completion of a mid-sized vehicle leaving pieces of clay all over the finish. Leaves a clay film which can be hard to remove without an additional washing prior to polishing.

While I was able to obtain the results I wanted the additional time, effort, and increased product consumption makes this product a very poor choice for your claying needs.

I read all the negative reviews regarding the stiffness of the clay and difficulty to use, and I attributed this to inexperienced users and/or technique. I have experience using Clay Magic, Mothers and Meguiars brand clay bars and have never had any issues. I decided to purchase the 200g bar as it was substantially cheaper than the equivalent sized Clay Magic counterpart. I sectioned the bar into 8 pieces and have 'attempted' to use 4 of the pieces on 4 different occasions each with the same disappointing results. Today was my last time using this terrible clay and I threw out the remaining pieces. This clay is ultra stiff and near impossible to flatten into a usable sized piece. I have tried using this clay with a variety of lubes including both Dodo Juice Lube and ONR, and it always seems to stick to the paint. The clay will 'transfer' its blue color to the finish of the car. It also likes to stick to the users hands. I would HIGHLY recommend anyone looking to purchase this bar rethink their choice and instead pay the few extra dollars for a premium brand, such as Clay Magic.

Works very well, just as expected from a fine clay bar. I will be trying out the medium bar soon to compare results.

I don't know what everyone else is saying that the clay is stiff. I've bought this clay several times it's the best I've used. Very easy to work with and gentle enough that you won't scratch the clear coat. Also, I use it with clay lube for the best results. Great product!

Very stiff clay, not sure if it pulls all the containments out.

Nice size bar but the clear wrapper was heavily stuck to the clay and very sticky/gluey when trying to remove. Also the bar is not marked to identify the brand and or the grade of clay. After splitting the bar, a portion of it was used on the hood of a new car with a surplus of lubricant including the Poorboy's S&W that was included in the package purchase. Not only did the sticky/gummy clay residue stick to my hands but it smeared excessively on the paint requiring additional steps for removal. Like other reviewers, this clay does not have proper characteristics for quality or professional use. In fact we had to complete this project with our previously used Mequiar's fine grade of clay. We will continue to use Mequiars's and Griot's clays which are a much better grade of product and competitively priced.

I didn't pay for this product, but also barely saw any difference between this and clays from autoparts stores. It was a great bit more tacky right out of the packaging which led to blue stains on my fingers throughout the claying process. This clay is also a decent bit more stiff than other clays I have used. I think I'll be going elsewhere to try other clays before coming back to this stuff, but will continue to use it on wheels for as long as it lasts.

The clay required a lot of lubrication and I found it was best to use as a half-dollar sized wedge of clay and have it spread to about 1/4" thick. A few times, the clay got away from me and I had to pull some more from the bar. The clay is very sticky and it will adhere to the paint when not enough lube is used. The clay did pull a lot of contaminants from a car that rarely sees the light of day and is stored under a cover in a garage.

The clay worked fairly well at removing contaminants, but it was just too stiff and I couldn't knead it into different shapes or to reveal fresh surfaces.

Great general purpose claybar for your semi-yearly clayings.

This bar breaks down and sticks to the surface of the car no matter how much or what kind of lube I use. I Used ONR (light to heavy concentration), Poorboys, Meguiars, and it still sticks in some sort of way. Now this isn't the first time I have ever clayed a car so it can't just be me. The temperature outside was around 75 degrees. So I doubt it was the temperature too. I think I just got a bad batch.

Although it does appear to do it's job and remove contaminants, it is much more tough to knead than other clay which makes it difficult to work with.

This stuff is tough to knead. It breaks down no matter what lubes I use. And it doesnt seem to pull the contaminates out very well.

The more I use this Clay bar, the more I hate it. I'm not sure if it's this batch or just this brand of claybar in general, but it keeps falling apart, leaving lots of clay bar smeared all over the surface. I bought 5 bars and 3 out of five has acted the same way. very disappointing. Clay Magic is what I have always been raised on and it does a better job and doesn't fall apart.

Loved the clay bar. Great quality and left the surface exceptionally clean! Would buy again in a heartbeat!

This is a great fine grade clay for my needs. It is harder than some, but hot water will soften it nicely and make it stickier.
It also withstands repeated cleaning with BlackFire ClayBar Cleaner and Extender, which is a big plus for professional detailers, and doesnt appear to have any problems like some of the earlier clay formulas of different brands.
I would certainly buy it again from Detailed Image,

This product worked great.
I have a 2001 HD FLHT motorcyle that stated looking pretty bad after 60,000 miles so I tried the clay bar, with the exception of a few rock chips it looked as good as new.

Works just as well, if not better than clay bars costing twice as much. Excellent product and a great price.

This was my first clay bar purchase. The product was easy to use and for the most part appeared to get the job done. If your vehicle hasn't been clayed before, has a few years on her, and has some level of contamination, you might want to try the medium grade. When I clayed my 2007 3 series, I didn't pick up as many containments as I expected to.
