    My most used polishers are the Flex XCE125 CBeast and the Flex PXE80.
    Wait, am I recommended the fast correcting cream or the regular correcting cream? I didn't realize that there was the fast one until you brought it up.

    Paul a has good suggestions too.

    Ive never tried griots abrasives, nor those megs 205/105.
    I have switched my abrasives over to everything 3D and have not looked back. I still keep menzerna on the shelf but have not needed to go back to it.

    If i were in your shoes having the bit more knowledge that i gained since starting into this i would return the megs pad/abrasives kit for a different combo. Maybe some white lake country foam polishing pads and 3d abrasives. And since your running a free spinning tool i would have a microfiber pad on hand for if ya need some heavy cut.

    Or just run what ya got and enjoy the learning experience!

    Like Opie, my most used abrasives are by 3D.

    I really enjoy the relatively dustless nature of the polish, and it's versatility in being able to cut and finish.

    Like others mentioned, it can be a bear to wipe off, but that usually on my initial test spot, because I use too much polish from the get go. I can usually brush out the pad after that test spot and go straight to the next section without the need to reload the pad. If I do this, wipe off is a breeze.

    Menzerna 2500, Jescar Medium Polish, Sonax Cut and Finish Meguiar's M205, and Optimum Hyper Polish could all function in that capacity. I even still use some of these on occasion. Bit if I had to choose one, it would be the 3D ONE.

    To compliment 3D ONE I have ACA500 for the really hammered paints, and AAT502 for super fine polishing.

    I used to be nuts about pads, and still am, but just can't keep up with all the new offerings. These days I typically use Buff and Shine Uro-Fiber for heavy correction, and the yellow Uro-Tec for polishing/finishing.

    This week I did a black Mercedes Sprinter. I forgot I had left a set of maroon Uro-Tec pads there, and after trying the Lake Country Orange HDO (not enough cut), blue HDO (clogged up fast, kind of "jumpy"), and LC microfiber cutting (clogged up very fast, left a bit of marring), those maroon pads nailed it. Removed all the fine scratches, swirls, and oxidation, and left a finish ready for coating. Of course, 3D ONE was thr polish I used. This has taught me to keep those and the blue coarse Uro-Tec in stock. Sometimes a heavy cutting foam just hits the mark.

    I haven’t used the Correcting Cream but the Fast Correcting Cream isn’t too aggressive of a compound in my opinion and still finishes pretty well though I do 2-step polishes with it. And I usually use a Rupes Blue Wool pad with it. Takes care of issues pretty quick. Your mileage and needs may be different of course.

    Have you tried Correcting cream? Has worked ever time with an orange pad. FCC sat there and was never needed.

    None of my BOSS products are runny at all. In fact, I noticed they were easily some of the thickest products I've used, they are very much a cream in more than just name. They also don't seem to separate like others I've used either. I've had my bottles for a couple years and while I might shake them out of habit at each use, it isn't really needed they are so thick.
    Interesting...i always had a suspicion, it was a bad batch. It was REALLY runny. Thanks.
