Id like to try a forced rotation DA

Hi,
Im looking to upgrade from my standard DA. As the title Id like to have a go with one of the forced rotation DAs before I buy, any brand, not bothered.
Im in Lowestoft, Suffolk and prepared to travel a few miles to do so.
Any kind offers out there?
Thanks

Save yourself the time. Just buy a FLEX 3401 and move forward. I can't see someone not being truly satisfied with one after the minimal learning curve for someone that is already comfortable with a RO DA.

I got to agree with Jean-Claude. I was initially worried about moving from a DA to the flex and i was worried for no reason. It feels smoother and just as easy to control.

There are a lot of people not truly satisfied with their 3401 even thou it's a great machine. In the end it's all about personal preference.
I think TS does the right in trying one out before a purchase.

Or save yourself money and not buy a flex....

Not saying they aren't a good machine but I love my vertool and get results, so have saved money in the process

If you're looking to move on, any reason not to try a rotary as another alternative?
