    Re: NEW FLEX Cordless 3401 aka the FLEX Cordless BEAST!

    Sweet! Will be getting one of these down the line for sure!
    I love my Flex and a cordless one would be super sweet!

    Yes, hard work over the years and earning the trust of Bob and everyone at FLEX pays off. Note the word pays is plural, I didn't use the word paid. The future is looking bright.

    My test car has arrived. It's really dirty. We may use it in some videos we're shooting tomorrow and if we do it will get washed. I'll wait and see if we use it before taking pictures because right now there's so much dirt on it that it's hard to see the holograms and what looks like either a few tracers or RIDS.


    Here's a picture of the hood using the diffused overhead light
    (diffused light does not show holograms very well)

    I would say so...

    At this time there are 2 camps.


    The 8mm Camp

    The 5mm Camp



    So far it's kind of like Coke or Pepsi, some guys like the 5mm and some guys like the 8mm

    The good news is at least there's choices. Of course, that can just lead to more complaining. Use to be guys would complain there were not enough tool choices now they complain there's too many tool choices. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

    Wow, that is awesome Bob gave you #1 Mike, what an honour & a worthy recipient indeed.
    Thank you. I will treasure it above all the other tools in my collection.

Such a sweet feeling tool in hand, the build quality & balance is typical Flex - beautiful.
    Totally agree and the people in my classes love using the cordless version of the Finisher.

    Aaryn NZ.

    You're too kind Aaryn...


    Was shooting video all day today in the garage, yesterday was all day packing, Monday I'm writing new product reviews so I'm hoping on Tuesday to test drive the new CBEAST!

    Mike I hope Flex will offer the Cordless 3401 as a bare tool as well as in a kit. I for one have 2 chargers and 6 batteries from the 2 Flex cordless tools bought earlier this year. For those of us that already have bought kits a bare tool option would make the tool more affordable. I hope you can convey that to Bob Thank you

    Thank you

    I will send the link to your post above to Bob so you can rest assured he will see your suggestion.


    And that my friend, is the power of a well run forum and your forum friend.
