    Never tried BFOS but Speed is a great product. Great for an AIO for sure. Super easy to remove.... super glossy.... I use it mostly these days on large equipment...

    Hope that helps

    Re: Blackfire One Step compared to 3D Speed

    I have both---Blackfire has better correction.

    Speed little weaker than Blackfire in cut but gloss and sheen is brighter.

    Of the 2 listed---always, always reached for the Blackfire!

    Re: Blackfire One Step compared to 3D Speed

    I use Menzerna 3 n 1 for a 1 step...I can't compare it against Black Fire or 3d but I really like how it cuts and shines,,,seems pretty durable too.
    some have said it's greasy but I think that may be true for most of the 1 step products

    If you are just looking to try something different give it a whril

    I have spent a fair amount of time with both. BF cuts better, but Speed has better gloss and slickness....depends on what you're looking for. If you want to try an AIO that, to me, cuts as well as BF, and matches Speed in slickness and gloss, pick yourself up some Rupes Uno Protect. I've tried a bunch of the more recognizable AIO's on the market.....Blackfire, Speed, Megs D166, McKees 360 and Menzerna 3 in 1. I like Rupes Uno Protect more than all of them.

    Re: Blackfire One Step compared to 3D Speed

    Both are great. I almost wanna say they are the same. But I do think BF cuts a hair better. Either wipes off so easily after buffing a whole vehicle and letting it sit.

    I tend to chose BF just for the sales you can get sometimes and the fact that should you decide to top it with a true standalone LSP that it plays well with all the BF LSPs.

    Re: Blackfire One Step compared to 3D Speed

    Also depends on how much correction you have to do.

    Light swirling? Speed

    Moderate swirling, RIDS? BF One Step.
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    Re: Blackfire One Step compared to 3D Speed

    I have both and just used the BF AIO over the weekend with my new Dewalt Cordless, I still like Speed better.

    IMHO opinion Speed set the bar for AIO's and those that followed were just trying to copy it or one up it.

    The BF did not give me the correction I am used to getting with Speed with an orange LC pad.

    Did you use both products in conjunction with your cordless polisher?
