My flex. Love that thing. Ease of a PC cuts like a rotary.

To me, and this is IMHO; the Sonax P21S Gel is gentler, also the gel consistency ensures that it does not run off the wheel faster than you are able to agitate the cleaner. So, I use the Sonax P21S Gel in between the more serious cleaning, it does work well, and I typically buy all my supplies, in bulk, when the detailing stores have their 15% off sales.
Interesting! What you mention about the P21 is the same observation that I have made as well; very gentle but yet effective and the gel is great to work with. I did not know that the Sonax was more harsh. Thanks for sharing!

Nothing beats a good polisher. I am actually in the market for a new one, I have been considering the Rupes after all the hype. Seems to be a great machine, however the Flex does have my attention. I am not looking at picking up a rotary due to the lack of experience with one, and I figured I wasnt going to "practice" with the M!
