    Re: Picture - Mini Tools Side-by-Side - Griots - RUPES - FLEX

    For those DIYers who don't recognize every mini tool, could you please tell us - left to right - what tools you are showing.

    Thanks.

    In my experience with both the RUPES Nano & the Flex PXE 80 12-EC (PiXiE) itís not so much a size difference, there really isnít much in it between the pair. The PiXiE feels more like a polisher in hand & without weighing them the Flex feels lighter & more weíll balanced.

    In terms of performance - night & day difference in my opinion. Whilst the RUPES Nano is capable in rotary configuration, it just simply doesnít work in free spinning DA mode. The Flex however - DOES.

    Then we have the comparison between swapping out configurations too. Fiddling around with tools to change the RUPES Nano from rotary to the two free spinning DA options compared to the tool-free quick change system of the Flex PXE - as a detailer/shop owner, time is money & well, itís just so mush easier.
