I'm not a fan of the idea of using Novistretch over Expel.
In that prior thread, questioning the effectiveness of Expel, someone made a really good point about Expel protecting the front end from being "sand blasted" over time. He spoke about the fact that film will NOT protect against larger object impacts, but touching up a few chips will prove much easier than touching up literally hundreds of needlepoint impacts.
While I like this thought process, I'm thinking Novistretch will also prevent the needlepoint impact damage (I would hope). AND, the larger chips will be much less hassle to repair. Why? I can remove the Novistretch bra in a few minutes. Removing Expel to perform touch-ups...not so simple.
Again, whatever an individual considers prudent and effective for their situation, it's their choice! I'm good with it!
