    Yes, a lot. Whether any of them are actually of note, who knows.

    The new rupes 15mm and 21mm cordless polishers and lake country released the industries most powerful polisher with 3 different settings. Rotary, free spinning 8mm and 15mm throw, i can see them taking off in detailing shops. Probably the first tool i would buy if i opened a studio.

    Unveiling Rupes' Game-Changing Cordless Polishers: Bigfoot HLR15 & HLR21 - YouTube

    2 new rinseless one from labocosmetica and angelwax.

    Carpro the titan released new diamond coatings too and a great skincare kit for leather which i will buy, the brush alone looks great.

    Car detailing market sure is exciting in my opinion.

    I just used the Rupes UNO advanced for instance. What a great polish for well maintained cars. I`m pretty sure i will get the new Rupes 15mm cordless next year. I assume it`s going to be at least $750USD before shipping and taxes. Expensive but i don`t care lol

    Oh, sorry noorth, you are right, I guess I already have SEMA fatigue, the two new iBrids from Rupes was pretty big news; also, Optimum apparently introduced cordless versions of the Zentools, but there doesn`t seem to be any info about that yet. I think the new UDOS, however, is still perhaps "a solution looking for a problem" as Anthony Orosco put it in another thread. It does sound better than the original, not sure if they will continue making the original.

    lol do you have any cordless polishers?

    I didn`t know zentools had a cordless coming out. Thanks. I going to buy one of the better 15mm cordless tools. Rupes most likely.

    I have a ton of polishers. If I was going to buy another it would definitely be cordless. That Rupes 15 sounds pretty enticing. I never went long-throw, I was pretty happy with things when I got my Flex 3401. I do have plenty of other cordless (non-detailing) tools.

    I think for the first time since I`ve been on detailing forums (I started with MOL, then quickly came here) Meguiar`s didn`t do a teaser thread, and therefore there was very little activity on MOL regarding the new products. Unless there is just very little activity at MOL these days, kind of like here.

    I have never tried a forced rotation machine besides a mini rotary. If i was a pro i would have by now. It does seem the market in general is tilt a nice bit towards long throw polishers over the 3401 type machines.

    Well, at the time the Flex came out, that was really the only way to get swirls out quickly besides a rotary. Things changed a bit when M105 came out, microfiber pads, and the long throw machines.

    I have a G15 that can easily take out heavy defects in a few minutes. So yeah they correct just fine.

    Its funny, 5 years ago everyone was saying you should start with a 8mm throw DA for a "beginner" lol I have never used one i bought the G15 as my first polisher. ZERO regrets.

    It was 2007 I believe when the 3401 came out. There was really nothing else at the time, as I said, before long throw, before Meg`s came out with M105 and before smaller, thinner pads became the norm for PC-type machines, before MF cutting pads--those things enabled real correction with a PC. There was really no way but rotary before the 3401 came out to efficiently remove defects. The entire machine polishing world has changed since then with the advent of better machines, pads, and polishes. And BTW, the Flex was half the price it is now when it came out. People would complain that $150 was too much for a PC back then, and now we`re talking about 5 times that.

    I use a forced rotation machine, almost exclusively. I have Makitas. I started with the BO6040 and now have the BO6050. No regrets.

    I just found another Korean brand if anyone is interested. Carzilla in Canada just started to sell some of the products.
