    well if i wanted to make it far easier id have paid that but i obviously refused to pay it so shopped around and got it at a great deal? concidering it had 2 minor scratches on it and it decreased the value lol.

    i defo wouldnt pay 850 for it shopping around pays off

    Had a shot of one today, not impressed. Went back to my old flex original. Wouldnt rush out and buy one irrespective of the price.

    Hello There, In Europe the plaster is much harder than the UK. They use hard or medium backing pads and thats what come with the machines. Try purchasing the soft backing pad Flex code 366.862 the list price is 29.00 and avalible from most good dryling supply companies. In future i understand Flex will be including the soft backing pad as standard.
