Smoove Lube .... Anyone Tried It???

Came across an article basically saying this is the best thing since sliced bread but I'm skeptical on some of the reviews from bike mags etc. so wanted to hear from real users.

Is anybody using this and if so what are your thoughts please ... I did find a thread in one other forum with very mixed opinions although a lot of the negative seemed to be from people that may have applied it too liberally so interested to hear from people on a forum what their experience was if they'd used it and of they'd buy it above and beyond all others or try an alternative instead??

Smoove is the bomb. Love it. Lasts long, quiet. Buy it. Clean the chain well first, then apply and let dry overnight. It is like Pedros Ice Wax but much better. I applied enough so the chain had a thin white haze on it.

I considered it, but wasn't confident I'd have the discipline to apply it more than 8 hours or so before I needed to ride. Though, I did like Pedro's Ice Wax back in the day. Actually, can't actually articulate why I stopped using that stuff. hmmm

BTW, I clean and reapply every ten rides, so 300 - 360 miles.

I thought about it, but the slick wax is quick to apply for a ride. In a perfect world I'd use it, but then I'd have a new bike after every time it needed a lube... in a perfect world.
