Default Owatrol Textrol or Sikkens decking paint/stain

Anyone ever used these brands ?
Any good or bad feedbacks around please ?
I am trying to do some research /homework for my newly installed decking and am led , so far , to believe these brands are far superior than the likes of Ronseal or Cuprinol.

Thanks

I've used Liberon deck oil for two year on my deck and I'm very pleased with it. This is what the Pro's use.

I chose the teak stain but would probably go with clear if I had the choice again, I like the natural colour of the wood and the teak is a little red for my taste but not unpleasant.

Use an oil or other type of impregnator rather than a topical finish (something that sits on top and provides a barrier) - they seem to wear better.

Make sure the boards are absolutely dry before application, a minimum 72 hrs good weather before application.

I used Textrol golden oak 2 years ago on my deck & spindles. I have to say, it lived up to its reputation, still looks good & not a bit of it peeled off.
It was a bit expensive but as it lasted longer, id say it was better value overall.
Didnt use the sikens yet so no opinion
