I would have agreed with this statement before using the Griot's 3" polisher. It is much more balanced than putting a 3" backing plate on a regular DA, the 3" polisher is easier to use on a motorcycle and tighter spaces, you don't have to worry about changing backing plates, and when dealing with delicate paint such as pinstripes it's such a blessing due to size and balance. I have zero regrets buying this little machine.
