Black Friday Hunting

I continue to flirt with the idea of an iBrid Nano (although the new Flex looks interesting)

The Amazon 'Festival of Spend' is nearly upon us - what is on your wish list, what are you shopping for this year?

I'll be selling my 3 flex and 1 shinemate in the nearish future to go battery powered

Already bought the PXE from CYC as they had it in stock with the DW discount, only other place that had it in stock was county detailing supplies that I could find and don't know of a discount code for them, whether they'll be back in stock in time for BF/cyber monday at the more competitive traders who knows, they may all hold fire as there going to sell anyway being new on the seen.

Imagine there'll be deals to be had on the cordless XFE, though there a bit thin on the ground at present

I got the Rupes Mille and it is a very good machine.

I was thinking of doing the same and going wireless, my only problem is that do they really pack the same punch?

Thanks
Rob

Agree, pxe price is ok for me just XFE is very close to £600, Slim’s had discounts 2 weeks ago just not for XFE, XCE was for 450£

I can’t compare Mille with Flex XFE because never owned one, can tell only this, people around world call XFE good finisher, I don’t agree, with correct compound and pad (wool pad) is ******* great cutting Beast too, that’s my opinion

the Mille being 900w and sure it will take more amps due to the forced drive. Can't be bothered to check ........ but I can share I spoke to one of the Rupes guys that do the demo's a few weeks back and quite sure he told me Rupes were about to put a cordless out soon.

Last couple of years I have found better deals before and after Black Friday not necessarily on detailing gear, but I follow prices of bigger purchases a good while before and you would be amazed at the games played.
I think some companies think people will just buy on BF as it must be cheaper know, I’m not saying traders on here though just generally

For Rupes machines check out either Britemax or AMDetails, both have 20% off vouchers
