Lucas Slick Mist Speed Wax

Something about a clean bass fishing rig makes me fish better. It clears my head and it just feels good to fish out of a clean bass boat. I’ve been using Lucas Slick Mist Speed Wax for several months and it’s been absolutely incredible. 4 key characteristics make it the best boat and truck detailer spray that I have ever used.

•      Doesn’t streak

•      Repels water and bugs

•      Strong

•      Use on a wet or dry surface

Will not streak

I’ve used plenty of detailer sprays that leave smudges and streaks. If you spray the low-quality stuff on dried up fish slime or blood, you’ll smear it all over the boat. Lucas Slick Mist Speed Wax does not streak regardless of the conditions in which you use it. I frequently apply it in direct sunlight with excellent results. As long as you don’t let it dry, it will not streak—period.

I also use Lucas Slick Mist Speed Wax on my trailer. I have an aluminum trailer void of all the fancy fiberglass fenders and it still cleans it very well.

Protects your boat against the elements


After you wipe your boat or tow vehicle down with Speed Wax, they will stay clean for a long time to come. Whenever I fish in the rain, water beads up and slides off the boat, leaving minimal water spots once it dries. This also holds true for my outboard engine. As I come off pad and water rushes onto the engine, it now beads up very well without leaving nasty spots.

I’ve also had a lot of success using Slick Mist Speed Wax on my boat windshield. Spring and summer are awful months for mosquitos down here in Georgia which can make late evening boat runs miserable. After wiping my windshield down with residual Speed Wax left on my microfiber towel, bugs do not stick to my windshield anymore.

Very strong


There is very little that I haven’t been able to clean with Speed Wax. Even when I’ve gotten lazy and let my boat’s mud line collect for a few trips, it takes it right off—even if it’s dry. I’ve removed dried blood, dried vegetation, fish slime, water spots, dead bugs, pollen, spilled oil and spilled gasoline with Speed Wax.

In the photo above, I applied 4 sprays of Speed Wax to the area on the left and immediately wiped it clean with a microfiber towel. This was some nasty, dried road grime on the side of my boat, but it wasn’t any match for Speed Wax. This stuff is seriously the real deal.

It smells like cinnamon, too—if you’re into that kind of thing.

Use on a wet or dry surface

Of course I’m not telling you to smear gritty dirt and pollen onto your boat without rinsing it off first. You can, however, use Speed Wax on dry surfaces to remove quick spills and messes. I tend to use it on dry surfaces when I’m spot-cleaning an area where a fish might have bled or maybe I spilled some gasoline.

For cleaning your entire boat, however, I definitely recommend using it on a damp surface. I prefer to wipe my boat down with Speed Wax in the marina parking lot before I head home. This makes any mud lines or stubborn water spots easier to remove.

Lucas Slick Mist Speed Wax has made my boat look brand new. It leaves a clean, slippery finish that repels future messes and protects your investment. I think you’d be hard pressed to find a product that will leave your bass rig shinier.

Lucas Slick Mist Speed Wax can be found in a wide variety of auto part stores, such as Napa Auto Parts, Advance Auto Parts and O’Reilly Auto Parts. Be sure to check out their awesome line of quality marine products at, too.
