The only way you can become proficient with a rotary buffer is the same way a piano player gets to Carnage Hall: Practice! Practice! Practice!
NOBODY, including Mike Phillips, woke up one day proficient in handling a rotary buffer. He along with the rest had to learn the old fashioned way: Get one and use it. Once you master the rotary, you'll probably use a DA less and less.
One benefit of attending a detailing class like at Autogeek, Detail King or Kleen Car (and others) is you can find out if it's the right machine for YOU without having to drop the big bucks for the unit up front. That's how I know I made the right choice for ME.
