Default Swirl remover - poor boys vs pinnacle

Hey guys,

I need a good swirl removal "set" and I have narrowed it down to these two products (Poor Boys and XMT Pinnacle). Both have 4 levels of swirl removal.

I am going to buy the sample kit of poor boys from autogeek, but pinnacle doesn't offer a sample kit for all their swirl remover levels.

Does anyone know where I could get the samples? If someone owns the pinnacle XMT swirl series and is willing to send a few ounces of each, I would pay for the shipping and a little for the product too.

Please let know. I would very much not like to purchase full bottles for a comparison to see what I like.

Thank you.

Just saw this - If you haven't already ordered. . I have worked with the Pinnacle XMT swirl removal products.. I wasn't impressed. Yes, they took out the big swirls, but the finish never could get perfect. Even the finest polish still left tiny micro-marring. It was pretty evident on my friend's black cts-v under a light.

I will tell you this, though. I personally use Wolfgang total swirl remover 3.0 and I will probably never use anything else. It rips through swirls, but it finishes out perfect without having to go back with several stages of finer polishes to remove micro marring. Wolfgang TSR 3.0 + Orange foam pad + Porter Cable (or flex, similar) is all you need for it to look as perfect as it's going to get.

Thanks, but I already bought the pinnacle stuff. I guess I will have to learn on my own. If neither the poor boys or pinnacle stuff work out, I will try your product.

Poorboys has worked great for me over the years. Does the job and is not expensive.
Use Detailed Image to get most of my products. They have a good amount of info at the sight also.
