Well... don't have much time for testing, but first impression are:
- slightly more cut compared to H8
- abrasives are MUCH more uniform compared to H8. So in some way, H9 finishes even better than H8.
This is all for now...

Thank you for your initial impressions with H9.

Did you also pick up M3.02 and F6.01 to test?

I accidentally picked M3.02, and purposely bought F6.01 to try the other day and the dedicated pads. I'll be testing this weekend and let you know how I get on ( Previously used H8, M2 and P2)

Maybe F05.01 or F06.01 would be ideal one-step polish with DA before selling car. Are these Koch polishes oil heavy or easy to wipe off without need to wash car after polishing?

Based upon how Koch Chemie rates F5.01, it's in the P2500 ish range... So like Menz MC2500, Scholl S20 Blue, etc. F6.01 got bumped up an extra point on their cut scale whilst maintaining a P2500 rating, so sounds more like Rupes UHS level cut on spec...

Based upon how Koch Chemie rates them, these are not as aggressive as some of the other 1-step, P1500-2000 rated heavy polishes on the market... Like Scholl S20 Black, S17+, Menz MC2200, OP-II, 3D One, etc.

Whether or not this cut category of polishes makes them an ideal 1-stepper for resale jobs depends on whether a P2500 polish will suffice, or if you need a P1500 one to do the job. I happen to really like P2500 polishes, and find where they sit in the polishing spectrum very useful, even though they aren't always the ultimate in cut. So I'm very curious about this new line from KC...

I'll definitely appreciate hearing anyone's initial experiences with them.
