I've tried a lot of finishes in my shop, the one that I always go back to is Tru-Oil. depending on how I apply it, and rub it out, I can replicate just about any finish from a high gloss "piano finish" to a hand rubbed oil finish.

And no it doesn't cloud.
I've come to the same conclusion. But it had nothing to do with durability. I just could not tell much or any difference in the finish of guns using Timberluxe vs. Tru-Oil. Timberluxe is a lot more expensive and I would use it if I could see a meaningful difference. But I've gone back to Tru-Oil
