I am thinking about stepping up from the PC to a rupes. Not so much for the performance increase but more for the getting away from the vibrate you to death part.

I dont detail professionally or on the side for that matter and only do my own stuff and maybe a family member on occasion. This would be for light paint correction and applying liquid paint sealants.

I can save $100 and possibly more going with the older version compared to $399 for the new Mark II.

I have not really seen any unbiased reviews comparing the two. Seems like the main difference is ergonomics.

Anyone had their hands on both?

Rich- Sadly I never used the Original Rupes, but I have the new Mark II 15MM and I absolutely LOVE it!! It is night and day difference from the PC. Granted, I used my PC for 5 years before upgrading....

Trust me, I don't think you'll be disappointed at all!

Thanks Carl. I have no doubt that is a great machine. Just not sure I want to spend $400 on something that will get little use if a $299 older version is similar for my uses.

Course if I wait for Adams next 15% off sale I will save $60 going that route.
If you plan on using the machine more than 4x a year, upgrade. :2cents:

And that's exactly what I did when I got my Mark II Rupes Bigfoot. Granted, it's only $60, but it sure made me feel a lot better!!

Sad part- I spent that extra $60 I saved on other Products..... :boff:

Nicely done, since most of their sales promotions exclude polishers.
