ProsWell balanced - one handed operation for those long stretches near the bow, no sweat. Marking backs of pads with four radial lines helped visualize pad rotation on hull curvature. If lines stopped spinning, pad was not flat to surface. Easy to adjust.
ConsNeeded to get used to trigger lock - then no problem.

First off, I'm pretty much a novice at detailing with a polisher. My previous experience is with a $29 Ryobi vibration machine. Man, this is a step to the moon compared to the Ryobi. I used Wolfgang products on a black 2011 BMW and the paint came out beautiful. I'm still learning the techniques by the pros but I was really amazed at what was accomplished by this polisher especially at my skill level. It's enjoyable to own a quality product no matter what it is and this exceeded my expectations. For me, it is a good investment that will last a lifetime.
ProsWorks great, quality product.
ConsNone that I know of.

I can't say enough about this polisher.
I captain a private yacht in the Miami area, we tried all type and kinds of polishes and polisher. The Rupes is the go to polisher for me. When using my favorite product I get outstanding results with considerably less time needed to do so. Using the Rupes 21 allows me to cover more area in a shorter am out of time, with a big saving in money/labor. You want your work to look like or better than the pro's, buy this polisher, you will not be disappointed.
ProsIt has the ability to cover large areas in less time with little effort.
ConsVery powerful, take care to use it correctly or it will make more work for you.

I "grew up" with the GG DA using MF pads. It worked great. I was considering upgrading to a Flex and read the reviews/comparisons of the Rupes on the forum and chose the Rupes with 5" backing plate. Whoa nellie! Amazing difference. The Rupes is so smooth and effortless it makes it almost effortless to apply compounds, sealants, etc. Fantastic product and I can't recommend it highly enough.
ProsSuper smooth. So much so you can use with one hand.
ConsIt does stop suddenly so it can surprise you.

This is the best polisher I have ever used! Incredibly smooth, no vibrations, and plenty of power! I also use the 5" backing plate for smaller panels. The Rupes pads and polishes work incredibly well and I use the system on my personal vehicles.
ProsPower! Versatility! Smooth and easy to use!
ConsExpensive but worth it!

Just sold my flex 3401 for the rupes and couldn't be happier. ITs much more enjoyable polishing now because this thing is so smooth and just feels good in your hands.
