    Which 15mm polisher to buy?

    I have a Griot’s G15 on order but Griot’s keeps delaying when it will be ready, currently it’s two more months away...

    I have found a Rupes LHR15ES for $50 more than a G15 that ships now... I’m starting to think I should bite the bullet and spend the extra $50 for 2 months of getting things done.

    Is the ES even worth while?

    Any thoughts?

    That original Rupes is going to make you regret the choice. Go for at least the MK II but if you can, the MK III has all the nice improvements that they copied from Griot's.

    Even better deal, find someone that wants to sell their old G15 thinking the new one is a nice upgrade. I love my Boss G15.

    For the extra money - I would always go with the Mark III

    That or wait for the newest BOSS 15


    I know - tough to wait.

    Go with a 21mm
    Faster correction
    More coverage
    Stalls less
    Slap a 5in BP on it, get a tad more correction

    Where the 21mm won't fit, nor would the 15mm..so get yourself a 3in for those areas...or a 2in...aka G8

    +1 for what Mike said about the 21mm. 5 inch pad on a 21mm long throw is pretty damn beast.

    If you don't want to wait, theirs plenty of other brand options,

    Just repack the grease with quality heavy duty bearing grease and use proper 12 or 10 guage extension cord..good to go
