    Ibrid or PiXiE? I know itís been asked

    So with black friday Iíve found a Nano Longneck onsale for $470 tax/shipping for the systainer kitÖ normally $630.

    A PiXiE runs about $370 all in tax and shipping but with no pads.

    Iíve decided against less expensive machines so if you could choosr only 1 of the 2 what would it be and why?

    Note: pricing for flex is from AG when the have a polisher sale which usually shows up in next 2 weeks.

    The other is non Autogeek but will check with them as they do PM.

    I have a Pixie as well and like it but I’ve never used an iBrid Nano to compare. The only attachments I miss that the iBrid has are the brushes. The Pixie has plenty of power to spin 3.5” pads.

    This is the first time in a long time that I have seen Rupes offer black friday deals on the ibrid.

    I have both and I use the ibrid more than the PXE. Both have their place and having both is the best option.

    A copy is never as good as the original.

    Now that every site and their mom has the duetto and the ibrid on sale i wonder if these are being discontinued/replaced or if just sales are slow.

    Not all rupes on sale

    One of my biggest complaints is i figured for the price theyíd switched to a brushless motor.

    Probably still gonna orderÖ been on a black friday benderÖ.
