Edit: Just watched the videos. Good to see emphasis on cleaning out the pads. I've seen most people recommend compressed air over a brush for cleaning but have you not noticed anything negative with using a brush repeatedly?

Looks great!

In the first video you show the smaller pads on the table. I do not see them on the web site though. When will those pads be available?

Not that I've noticed, and while compressed air is fine, a lot of people don't have access to it so we figured the brush makes more sense.

I have used the blaster sidekick a few times and it packs enough power to blow the pads out as well.

I'll second this. While I obviously haven't specifically used the Adam's MF pads, the nylon brush works awesome on other MF pads. Been using it on mine for a long time now with no problems.

Agreed that most don't have a compressor on hand.

Nice!

What are the major differences between SHR and the new Paint Correcting Polish and the FMP and the new Paint Finishing Polish?

I'll be ordering the polishes at some point, undecided on pads.

In terms of the consistency, are these as thick as SHR and FMP were?

The Correcting Polish is pretty close to SHR, but the Finishing Polish is not as thick as FMP is.

The new Correcting Polish has more correction capability than SHR does and it finishes as well, and in most instances, better than SHR.

The Finishing Polish has slightly more correction ability than FMP, finishes down perfectly, and has a MUCH longer work time than FMP does.


Here's a boat I did a few weeks ago with the new polishes/pads:

Nick,

I'll re-ask my question as it seems to have been lost in the polish questions.

The OP video shows small pads and big pads. But only the big pads are showing on the web site. When do the small pads become available?

The 4" pads will be available soon. I believe we will release them alongside our new polisher.

New polisher = Cyclo .. I'm about 99% sure.
I'm curious if the Finishing Polish makes the paint look better than the Fine Machine Polish.

All these name changes are getting confusing.

It sounds like it has a little more correcting power than the FMP, so I doubt it will finish better - my guess is it will finish about the same as the FMP.

It should finish better. Better abrasives and longer work time will allow a skilled operator to refine the finish better than FMP- which I always thought was a glaring weakness with the previous system.

I'm actually pumped to try the new polishes. Just have to get through what I have first. No sense letting it sit on the shelves.
