You really have to use some aggressive stuff to remotely think about burning anything with the Flex. The edges are definitely a concern with the Flex but that's about it as far as burning is concerned. The Flex does, however, remove clear coat much faster than the PC and is why I question the use of it on brand new paint with no damage.

The Flex, as any professional detailer knows is a compliment to an array of polishers. It is not the one and only polisher you should have if you truly know what you're doing. I have the PC, Flex, Bosch and Makita polishers to choose from and I pick the polisher that fits the job I'm working on. That job may, and usually does consist of using a combination of two polishers.
