    I wouldn't use either, but that's just me.

    I like to feel the clay "work" in my hand because I know when I'm done with a section. Using an applicator would remove the tactile feel. I dunno, it's hard to describe.

    not sure, what sure this has to do with with the subject matter but hey.

    I'm not a fan of that da application of the clay. I don't think it works as well because I like to know if I'm getting the surface smooth and using it by hand does it better IMO. I found that the da applicator tends to leave more "clay haze" than doing it by hand.

    Someone taking advantage of me being operated on? Thanks Tank. :)

    I think that method of claying has a real potential to trash your paint since you don't have a very clear view of it as you are claying.

    +1, some things are still and will always be better when done by hand. I'd be afraid that using the clay applicator would take away some of the 'feedback' you get from a bar that needs kneading.

    I've actually ordered a Hi Tech Body Sponge. Really had some good recommendation and can be used with ONR and conventional washing.
