Menzerna,you must be rich... I boought some once from autogeek online they have forums too and sell all those pinicle waxes and stuff, hell I bought a quart of souveran wax and menzerna compound and when it got to me c.o.d. My bill was 18.00 shipping and 170.00 for the two chemicals I almost fainted as I paid the ups guy.... Though chemicals and pads do help,its the person controlling the machines speed and texture/proccess that truly matters...

Chris, when I say one pass to cut 1000 scratch, I mean a section about 18" square with a wool (seasoned) pad plus a couple three lines of SF on the panel that was just finish filmed. I sometime keep going over the area with the wool pad but like to switch over to the orange pad (damp with some product) and bring that to a semi-swirled finish.

Before TF/SF, I was using Presta UCC as the compound. The SF has done the same result for me without the mess from the heavier UCC. I think the UCC is some great stuff along with the entire Presta line. I just find the SF to work as well without the mess and keep me with one product. The other thing that I did not like about the Presta was, at least for me, I would never use the pad I used for UCC, to be used with their next step of 1500 or 2000 polish.
I will say the worst experience I had with TF was the first time when I was using it experimentally on a complete repaint. I did half the car with Presta and half with True Finish. The TF lost hands down due to the dullness over the Presta. I later figured out that was because I used the pads I used for the Presta to work the TF. I think this loosened the Presta which mixed with the TF and thus I made my own mess. Henry
