Man after all the hype of the famous California water blade and Absorber, i finally decided to buy them. I washed my car, started using the california waterblade and continued to do so until it was time for the absorber and then i finally finished my microfiber towels. The absorber worked great, just like any other chamois... Microfiber i always love and trust. The waterblade put a 3" long scratch on the top of my trunk (clearcoat i think) and a 3" long scratch in the corner of my hood (clearcoat) also two small scratches parallel to each other where the gas door is cept on the driver side. California Waterpieceof$hit will never touch my car again:thumbdwn:

Newsflash: Rubberized silicone can't scratch a car. Did you drop it? You likely dragged a rock or some other debris stuck to the blade across the car. If I ever drop mine when using it I stop the entire process and hose down the entire unit and then test it on the windshield before I commence drying. It is still be best tool in the right hands.

Sorry to hear about your scratch though.

it wasn't the blade bro......that blade is a miracle............most likely your blade dragged something to give u that scratch.........thats why its imperitave, that the blade is wet and clean at all times

I think Klangford is right. Works beautifully on my car. Never a scratch and I don't see how it could scratch given the soft and pliant nature of the silicone.

My car is black. And i didn't know it scratched my car until it was dry.... you can't see scratches when your car is wet:rolleyes: I also continually checked to make sure no dirt or debri was in the way, and i never dropped it...
