We have used the starbrite three step on our teak before and it works great, but it doesn't last long. And if you don't oil consistently, the places that oil runs out over time will discolor differently than the spots that still have oil, leaving a very splotchy ugly mess of the teak.

I was thinking this time of switching to the Snappy Teak-Nu. Anyone have any experience with this over the starbrite by chance?
