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.

So there isn't a one price bundle for both the paint and finish combo and the pads?

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.

Would love to try this stuff but I just bought some Maguire's M105/M205 about 3 months ago. It would be interesting to do a side by side comparison of these 2 product lines.

Yes these pads will work on the PC. They have the standard hook and loop attachment on the backs.
