For wipe on/brush on poly I liked the old Carver-Tripp water based versions. When I lived in Illinois I refinished three floor with this poly. The standard heavy duty poly could be made more durable for use on floors with an additive. A pouch of the additive really provided a tough finish.
I also used it, without the hardener, on a number of projects as there was no odor, non flammable, and water clean up.
However, Carver-Tripp was purchased by another company and I have not been able to find out who bought them and/or a substitute with similar characteristics.

I use Min wax rub on poly and General Finishes Arm-R-Seal and have never used their polycrylic which is water based.
