Scholl Ecofix

Hi as anybody used any of the new Ecofix range of polishes and pads?

I'm mainly interested in what you think of the pads as the seem a cheap price compared to other pads, especially spider pads. I've some Hexlogic pads which are double the price of the Ecofix range. Are the Ecofix pads too cheap? How durable are they? I'll be using the pads with Menz, Poorboys SSR and Sonax polishes. I haven't got any Scholl polish yet. Tempted by S20 Black, S30+ or E2000 and E3000.

I'll take any feedback on the polishes as well if you have used them.

Cheers.

Have seem few reviews on Youtube, looks like decent polishes and pads. Very similar to more expensive Abrafix line. Personally dont use them yet, but its still Scholl and Ecofix must be HQ line.

Only used S20 black but itís a great all rounder, I use it as a one hit wonder. Good levels of cut and finishes down very well.

Is S20 black part of the Ecofix range?

It doesn't include the Ecofix range but this is a good place to start:

Cheers Gonz but it's the Ecofix range of polishes and pads I was after feedback. I've read plenty of threads here on the Abrafi range from Scholl.

The pads seem reasonably priced and I'm debating whether to try them or pay a few pounds extra and try the Carpro Gloss pad and orange polishing pad.

This is the best YouTube video I've found on this range.

I was interested in the E1500 compound (I already have S30+ and S20 Black) but a) it's only available in 1kg bottles and b) those bottles are virtually the same price as S3 XXL.

Given I don't actually need 1kg of compound I will probably end up with a 500g bottle of S3 XXL instead. It does make me wonder where this Ecofix range is aimed at though...

Cheers Steelghost. Iíve viewed that video already and the guy says he needs more time to evaluate the range, hence me asking here in the forums.
I know what you are saying about the 1kg bottles, 500g would be better suited to the enthusiasts. I would probably try them myself if they were 500g bottles.

Iím still undecided about the pads. At the end of the day they will probably suit my needs as I donít need anything for major correction at the moment. Iíll try to find out more information before I hit the buy button.
