    BF One Vs 3D Speed

    Personally I think these are the best two AIO's on the market. When judging AIO's, we talk about cut, finish, durability and ease of removal. While I think BF One has just a hair more cut, I find these 2 to be very very close in all aspects and have no problem using either in my AIO package.

    One thing we don't really talk about is the look of an AIO. I have noticed that I like Speed on darker colors due to the depth, richness and glow that it leaves behind. It also has a slight darkening effect. BF One leaves a crisp, bright look that I like on lighter colors.

    Both are great products and you can't go wrong with either. This is just something I have noticed. Most AIO packages this slight difference goes unnoticed nor does it really matter. Anyone else notice this?

    Re: BF One Vs 3D Speed

    Oh geez. I was a bit confused there for a second. I initially thought "3D One" instead of Blackfire's One Step!

    With all the talk about 3D ONE lately, i guess my brain was wired to see ONE, and not BF One Step.

    I've seen others say similar about 3d Speed and the deep glow it leaves behind. I personally, never paid attention to that when using an AIO. At least not when I've used Speed.

    What type of longevity are you seeing with these two?

    Thanks for this post. One Step looks like a great product, and I already know Speed is from experience.

    Speed has a slickness and gloss that I've found unmatched in any of the AIO's I've tried....including BF, McKees 360 and Meguiars D166

    Speed is pretty slick. I think Duragloss 501 slightly edges it out though.

    Re: BF One Vs 3D Speed

    I switched over to BF AIO. And I have used HD speed for years. For the simple reason BF has more cut IMO.... As for longevity, I don’t know that yet but, I would think BF Will last longer as it contains a sealant not wax...

    As for appearances. HD speed contains wax and BF AIO contains sealant. Perhaps this is reason one gives a different effect on darker colors and lighter colors? As I never looked it that way before....

    Re: BF One Vs 3D Speed

    Speed always hits the mark for me. I never have much correction to do, but if need be, it will correct quite nicely with the right pad.

    That said, I completely agree with the good Dr Oldz on Speed's rich glow on darker/medium paints. Plus, the slickness factor is very pleasing to me.

    As far as longevity, I could never speak to that as I always top Speed with a durable sealant/wax.

    (And please, for love of God, no "Well then that defeats the purpose of an All In One" comments.............. )
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    This could very well be the case. Nice call.
