the "best of the best" is subjective. Like I said some people swear by HOK, some SPI, some RM, ect... It depends on what you are doing with it. That is why there are so many clears. What one clear works great for, another one sucks at and vice-versa. Some are air dry, some are booth clears. There is not ONE ultimate clear, or all companies would only make 1. ( and chronos, even SPI. Even they have more than one clear.
