You just can't beat RUPES Nano
There's other products that have tried to compete with RUPES Nano, but always you have to connect it with another rotor. RUPES is the way to go!

You have to adapt to it
This Nano reminds me of the philosophy of Ferrari or learning to cast a new fly rod. For this machine to be effective and a joy to use one must spend some time adapting to what it likes. At first I placed too much pressure on machine and the machine would quickly stop to cool down for a second. This polisher needs very little pressure to operate optimally. Also, it requires a certain amount of speed that the pad needs to travel in order not to overheat machine. The good news is once you get what this machine needs it rewards you with surprising results.
ProsSmall size and amazing results
ConsIt requires a learning curve. Do not expect to take it out of the box and expect great results.

Mix feeling. Need more time to test it out
I'd been looking for something that I can compound and polish A-Pillars with ease. Tried the Drill attachment, don't feel comfortable. Tried the Rotary with 3-in pad, feels it has too much power and I might make things worse. Tried the Milwaukee Drill polisher, it works well but again, its a rotary. So after doing some research, I decided to give the iBrid a try. The whole package looks awesome, I will say its very PRETTY. Comes with 2 batteries, attachments to covert between DA and Rotary, AD/DC converter to use the the polisher while waiting for the the batteries to charge. Soft start make the makes the entire experience pleasant. Now here is where my concerns. 1. One of the battery is not holding charge. Last somewhere between 5 to 10 mins while the other on last for 27 mins. Emailed Rupes and received per-paid FedEx return label the next day, however, don't wanna send it in yet 2. Polisher gets pretty hot after 10 mins. Probably user error. 3. Polisher seems under power. 4. Polisher power off randomly. Maybe user error, happens after 10-15 mins usage. release and press, polisher comes back on.
ProsBeautiful Machine. Well Designed Comes with AC/DC converter = No downtime Batteries charged up in 30 mins Work as DA and Rotary Very presentable package
ConsDefiantly expensive Battery performance is questionable

The Hype is Real
This product has been in my crosshairs for a year now. Itâ€™s the talk on many detailing forums. This product arrived in the middle of a Michigan winter so it hasnâ€™t seen much use. However I had a set of headlights sitting around and I decided to clean them up. This little machine is powerful. And I love the different functions (Dual action, Rotary) and brushes included. Upon receiving the product I did a little more research into Rupes and am quickly changing my arsenal up to all Rupes for my polishing needs.
ProsLiterally everything you need sold as a kit. Nice convenient bottles of product and a nice storage case.
ConsYou could say itâ€™s expensive. But itâ€™s a necessary tool for any Detailer and the quality warrants the cost. And it will pay for itself.

Reach Everywhere Tool. Works with 3" pads too.
I have a Rules Duetto, which now only serves the large Panels. Battery lasts long enough for the 2nd Battery to recharge, so you can keep going. I used 3" Lake Country pads with the 12mm throw and it works fairly well with those too, stalls with those ocassionally cause its hard to center that pad perfectly... the included pads work great. Too. Allows to finally give attention to the back of the car and all the vents etc.
ProsAllows polishing of more areas. Everything you could need is included. Can use 3" pads No more cord.
