Reflex Bed Liner Comments PLease

I know the topic of bed liners has been covered to death and I have read nearly all of them and it is obvious that most people prefer Line-X. This thread is intended only for people who have Reflex bed liners. My dealer is offering to spray my truck for 425. I have called Line-X and they want over 800 for color match with the extra. Is there anyone out there that has the Reflex? If so, how long have you had it? What have you put in the bed? And how do you like it?

I work at a dealer. I will say we dont use reflex but, more then likely our product is qite the same to color match. It goes on very very thin. Im talking less this an 1/8" and very soft. Scratch easy. You might wanna asked to see a truck with it in it. Might be worth to spend the extra cash.

there is a big difference between a colored reflex and Line-x bedliner! The reason Line-X did not push colors for so long is because urethanes are not uv stable ie red's turn pink/orange etc. They do not just fade they actually turn to a different color. Xtra is a unique two stage application where colored Line-X is applied around 200' that sets in 3-6 seconds, this allows the applicator to get in the truck and while the liner is still around 120' a color coded Kevlar topcoat is applied that cures with the product! This forms a composite where the top layer contains the exact code of the truck including the metalic in the paint! Also Xtra seals the top layer of the bedliner preventing dirt from getting into the pores and building that dingy film that you find on other spray on liners! There is nothing on the market like it and it is including in Line-X's exclusive written nationwide warranty! Line-X specs 125 and every applicator measures the bedliners, so if you get it done with reflex swing by so I can measure your bedliner and you can see if you got what you paid for! Xtra is worth every penny!

Ive got the regulat black reflex liner in mine, and i have no complaints about it at all. It has held up well to a good amount of abuse.

Reflex uses a low pressure application system. ALL brands that use this system make their liners look chunky or "cottage cheese". Brands that use a high pressure system don't have that problem.

I have the black reflex liner by the dealer. Its been on 2 years and still looks good after hauling motorcycles and 4 wheelers and dead critters. I have not seen one of the line-x jobs so don't know what the difference would be but i have seen the rhino and it looked crappy. May have been a bad job on the rhino though. Spilled gas hasn't hurt mine either but i wash it out as soon as possible

Rhino used to use a low pressure system. Then, they modified a couple of their existing products so that they could go through a high pressure system. So, as of about a year ago, their products are now high pressure. Chances are they made this move to match LINE-X, who has always used a high pressure system. However, the Rhino products are not the same as LINE-X and while Rhino now looks better than before, it still does not quite look as refined as LINE-X.
