Windshield wax?

What is a good wax or other to repel water? I've always used Lemon Pledge but I'm a little skeptical of my new Klock Werks.

Any suggestions?

I've never found anything that works better than Honda Spray Cleaner & Polish.

Wipe New has a new product out called Rainbrella. I'm thinking I might try it as soon as I see it in a store.

Rejex. It was made for light aircraft. It repels bug guts and keeps them from sticking. Good stuff, but it is a little spendy and you do have to reapply it every few weeks. But after a good coat of it, you can ride through a swarm of bugs and not have a single one stuck on the windscreen. I've seen them literally bounce off instead of splatting.

Just bought a 12oz bottle on your recommendation. Hope this stuff is as good as they make it out to be.

Jim I'm glad you bought a bottle. If it works tell me and I'm gonna get Doug to buy a bottle and then I'm gonna use his.
