Yes, true story.
Definitely practice first. It doesn't take long at all to get the hang of. And the results are far superior to a DA polisher.
Oh for sure, i think ill pick it up quickly. So far from what ive read its really just about paying attention to what you are doing and being smooth and always moving.
I don't know that the results are "far superior" but the same results may be achieved faster. What can a rotary do that a DA cannot now?
if you finish down a panel with a rotary vs a DA and then use a gloss meter to measure the amount of reflected light coming from the surface, a rotary does actually
produce a more level/ glossier surface that can
result in a better looking finish.
But TBH, if you took 2 identical cars of the same color and corrected both, one with a DA and the other with a Rotary, i doubt the difference would be huge.
Except the guy with the rotary would finish way faster lol.
As a pro, a rotary means you can correct a whole car in alot less time, which means more $/hr and cars per week which means more overall dinero amigo.
Plus the smoothness and ability to cut with foam for sure surpass DAs.
I was talking to chris about this. Think about it like this:
A Flex PE-14 on speed setting 1 spins faster than most DAs on speed setting 6. lol. While that does add friction and heat, that means you can move way way faster and get the same or better results. I also think a rotary will be able to squeeze all the performance out of a polish as well, cutting and finishing wise- but thats just a theory lol.
