    if you look at this video, the one out of three that vibrates the least is the BOSS...

    The one that vibrates and makes the least amount of noise. seems to be the Flex XFE7 (can't say if it is the XFE7-15 (the old one) or the XFE7-150 (the new one)) to me, from the amount of motion in the guy's forearm and watch. The G21 seems to be in the middle, and the Rupes 21 Mk II is the worst. Much of this is dependent on pads used. though.

    The Rupes pad was sitting on the edge and thicker than the other pads. That deformed the pad and threw off the balance. That's the explanation. The Flex 15mm is not as powerful as the Rupes MK II

    Didn't mean to insult anybody, just commenting on the video as it appears in the posting. I do see what you are saying about the Rupes pad being deformed by having it sit on the edge. What I don't know is what pads are being used on each polisher (factory pads for Boss and Rupes? Lake Country for Flex and maybe G21?). It just may be that the Rupes may have come out better with a different pad or a pad that wasn't deformed. I still don't see the G21 having less vibration that the Flex, or a lower sound output.

    I've got a Rupes Mark II a G21. I've heard the Flex was a pretty powerful machine. Did you personally use a Flex?

    Who told you this? Wrapt was still being generous or kind in his choice of words.
