It’s possible that you are just wiping too hard.

The first couple of coats will start to build a hard, smooth surface. After that, you have to wipe the finish on very gently, making sure the surface is evenly wet with fresh poly. If you apply too much pressure in spots, you will literally be wiping the finish off at the same time you are trying to wipe it on.
