well if you think the MF pad is grabby/grappy on the flex, well then it must be your not using it correctly works completely fine when I use it even on rock hard paints
Maybe or you are too biased. The fact is that me and all the other who have tested Rupes Mille here in Finland, found it to correct slower than 15-21. Rupes besting Flex is old news. Of curves are problem then its a user error.

I have some on my instagram and on finnish detailing site.

It is a well known fact that forces da is not the best for mf. I and many other have tested that. I dunno why you use that combo, but it sucks. Even yellow hex cuts more than mf on 3401.

As an all rounder i find the flex to be far superior, end off, the force drive is as near to a rotary as you can get without picking one up, there is no need to putting up with the bogging down nonsense.

I think this shows why I posted in another thread that IMHO we are more like artists & sculptors than scientists.

Some prefer one machine, some another. Some like microfibre pads, some don't.

As soon as the word "best" is thrown into the mix there's going to be many opinions and preferences. Just look at the "Marmite" thread, several "go to" products for some are soundly disliked by others.

In the end it's so much down to personal preference linked to knowledge and experience and if the final result is a happy car owner (and detailer ) then surely that's the job done?

Each to their own.
