I am thinking the 3m as its near enough £200, although the flex is supposed to have loads of grunt whilst being quiet and nimble (the festool seems to lack the grunt from what i am told). The flex is about £350 i think. So really its come down to price for me! HTH
The flex is no better than shinex imho.
Those who say that the flex has more power and torque have not tried the two machines.
The 3m polisher does not have the same performance as the other two, the Chicago pneumatic is better than 3m imho, more power and balance.

It felt much lighter, it was easier and better to hold, trigger locked and you can still change speed.

After using my sliverline all day i had a bad back, no such thing with the 3m.

It also felt easier to control.
