more info here. in my opinion Adams Americana is just the best. but it really boils down to personal preference and how much you want to spend.

Check out Autogeek.com and you'll learn more about the different products out there than you may want to.
Info over-load, but so very much needed when it comes to detailing our ride!

You will not be disappointed...but you may end up with more questions...LOL!

Hard question to answer as what makes something "the best" is going to vary based on opinion and desired result.

What criteria are you most concerned with:

Ease of use?
Price per application?
Durability/longevity?
Enhancement of the cars color?
Hand or Machine applied?
Liquid or Paste?
Etc.

After many uses of waxes including $100+ waxes I picked up Americana and it is by far my easiest and best looking wax. The best durability will come from a sealant such as werkstat acrylic.

I use Adams Buttery wax for the ease of application. Quick question, do I need to clay bar every time I wax? If not how often should I clay?

No need to clay that often... its an 'as needed' type of thing.

As mentioned you can do the baggy test, but for the mostpart you should be able to go anywhere from 3-6 months between clayings depending on where you live and what the car is exposed to.

I just got done using Blackfire products on my car. Goes on very easy and comes off even easier. Tomorrow I will finish cleaning the interior. Unfortunately I only use my phone for internet right now and I can't upload pictures to a post. I can post into my albums and will do so tomorrow.
