OK, Now I am confused…

I had someone highly recommend General Finishes High Performance Polyurathane top coat, then when I went to buy a quart at Woodcraft, the sales guy there said its a good product, but I really should look at tounge oil or danish oil as a more natural, repairable finish. He recommended toungue oil bacause , in his words, “when it gets scratched or dull…which it will no matter what you use, you can just rub another caot of tounge oil on and its good as new…with the poly you would need to sand the abrasion then refinish the whole rail”

OK..I am SOOO confused now…will tounge oil give a durable finish???
