I honestly dont use wax that often because of the great selection of sealants and coatings available nowadays. when i did use waxes though, i always applied them with the DA polisher. i found i was able to lay down a nice even thin coat that way.

but the straight line application method that you are describing is actually a preferred method for application (i I use it with sealants and coatings that i apply by hand). the "theory" is that if you were to instill and scratches or marring during the application process, that they would be less noticable because they were in a straight line, instead of circular pattern (or swirls).

Im not sure that either application method has less chance of instilling scratches over the other. in my opinion, if the product you are applying is non-abrasive, the car is clean, and the medium you are using to apply the wax/sealant is soft and non marring, then you should achieve the same results using either method.
