Hi Matt

Just seen your video

All your negatives, I kept saying you should have a Rupes iBrid Nano long neck

Rupes has a slightly longer neck & designed for two hands. Yours looks more like the shorter version, which is designed for one hand.

Rupes has...

no stalling, with or without extension bar.

a 12mm throw

a speed dial

an angled head making it more user friendly

inhouse R&D in italy & manufactured by Rupes in Italy.

Agreed the cost is a lot more, but you get what you pay for.

My mate has just sold his SPTA & purchased the Rupes. His words.. night & day.

Matt, I have said it numerous times. It's my favourite Rupes machine I have purchased.

Believe me, the price was a tough pill to swallow

So as per Matt's video's I had a similar experience with stalling etc until I got used to it. As a rank amateur though who machine polishes 2-3 times a year it will do the job for me.

I had a much better experience using it as a rotary with the 1" pads and extension bars. I used it for bumper lips, under door handles and a few other inaccessible areas.

For the money I can't complain. If I had a bottomless money pit then I'd go for the Rupes.
