I too like Mega. Never tried the street shoe yet but have tried the traffic. It was ok but didn't like the sheen.

Re: What Hardwood Finish?Street Shoe Or Traffic


i used Mega for years. Gave up on it though. Tends to look "washed out". Plus it's only a one part system. Streetshoe and Traffic are both 2 part systems meaning that there is a catalyst or hardener. If you are look for the 'best' finish and speaking of water based....you must go with a 2 part system. SS and Traffic are both at the top of the line. I personally much more prefer the look of oil (better build and gives a rich ambering effect to the wood) and would recommend Poloplaz primero.. but if you have dogs and small children id recommend SS or Traffic. Glitza makes a very good 2 part wbased finish that levels perfectly.
