For fresh clear within 48 hours dry, can P1500 trizact remove P800 dry finishing film pigtails and P1500 wet sanding marks by hand?

Normally, for clear coat without bad orange peel, I will go with P1500 trizact wet, then P3000 trizact wet. But, I got bad orange peel and dry spots from time to time, which I need to remove it by P800. Couple times I have tried this were on clear that has already dried for up to a week, which I have to sand the P800 pigtail off by either P1500 finishing film dry, or P1500 wet by hand, then move on to P1500 trizact. I know that was because the clear has harden up than fresh. So, if I sand the clear within 48 hours, will P1500 trizact be efficient enough to remove P800 dry pigtails?

Also, does anyone has experience on Eagle yellow fime and Buflex sanding papers?? How does it compare to 3M finishing film & trizact?

Sorry, I didn't see this question until now. :?

If the pig tails were generated by the grit of the Finishing Film then the 1500 should remove them but if the Finishing Film picked up nibs off the surface that dug into the clear then it may take a while to sand them out but I'd still use the 1500 Trizact wet.
