    Re: Flex vs. Rupes Gear Driven Orbital Polishers

    Good luck with your purchase.

    Cool thing about these forums is you can ask questions and figure out what best suits “your” needs as you stated. I find this forum is very helpful for instances such as this. Good people here!!

    Done Deal...!

    I'll let you all know how I feel with my decision as soon as the polisher arrives and I give it a test drive. I have a 2019 Chevy Volt, medium/dark blue metallic, lined up as the guinea pig.

    I only ordered a handful of pads (8 total of the 6" configuration) to try out before stocking up. If all goes well I'll certainly be getting more along with the 7-inchers also.

    I had been wanting a Mille when they first came out but ended up not getting it. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts as there hasn’t seemed to be much about this tool since it first launched.

    I considered the flex cordless beast but I personally just prefer rupes. Now if they made cordless versions of their tools then we’d be cooking.

    Anyone know when the FLEX XCE 10-8 125 Supa BEAST is supposed to be back in stock?

    I'll definitely be writing a review when the polisher arrives and then updating it after I give it some use.

    Got it today. Initial impression... I love it and definitely think I made the right choice.

    I started a new thread to document my review... RUPES Mille Review by 2black1s

    Re: Flex vs. Rupes Gear Driven Orbital Polishers

    2Black1s.....I was on the fence also between the two gear driven polishers. Also a massive rotary fan with most my finishing using a free spinning da.

    When ya made this thread it could not have been any more perfect timing but.......I went the other way and got the FLEX 10-8 125 somewhat locally.

    I'm seriously impressed with the quality and honestly it is a whole hell of a lot smoother and quieter than I was expecting !


    Thank you for the thread start 2Black1s and everyone who contributed.
