About this deal
You’ve got to factor in the increase in performance of some water based and the decline in performance of some solvent based. So a sneak peak of what Wood Finishes Direct found out in their trials - and I stress they haven’t published the results yet so this may change:

As I’ve discovered, some oils offer better water resistance, while others provide enhanced UV protection. The appearance of the finish, such as matte or glossy, is also worth considering when making my decision. A slight concern I had was the tendency of the product to clog when left in a spray applicator. However, with a bit of cleaning and attention, it can still be used effectively in this manner. Whether you want an easy to complete maintenance that needs regularly redoing or a more comprehensive one that you can apply and forget for a few yearsAnd there wasn’t much love for the Ronseal Ultimate Protection which in Nigel’s experience only lasted 6 months, and others have said has a tint - a horrible yellow colour. And indeed it’s a fact that the Ronseal clear has a slight pigment in it, which gives it its UV protection
Manns Premier UV Decking Oil - 5L Clear - A Multi-Purpose
What amazed me the most was the oil’s protective qualities. After treating the table, I noticed that water beaded up on the surface instead of soaking in, making it easy to clean and maintain. Plus, it worked wonderfully on both interior and exterior wood surfaces, giving it versatility and broad applicability.However, it’s worth noting that the finish isn’t entirely clear, as it adds a slight brownish tint to the wood. While it didn’t bother me too much, it’s something to keep in mind if you’re looking for a completely transparent finish. Additionally, it requires fairly frequent reapplication, especially in high traffic areas or when exposed to harsh weather conditions. It also brings out the natural shade of wood on various surfaces like fences, sheds, and hot tubs. While the RONSEAL Ultimate Natural 5L offers a “natural look,” the Liberon Clear Protection is specified as providing a “clear finish.” The choice between the two would depend on personal preferences regarding the desired appearance and the additional feature of UV protection provided by the Liberon oil.
