    Default which Kestrel DAS-6 should i go for??

    Afternoon all.

    Wonder if any dtailing guru's would suggest what kit to go for when ordering my Kestrel.


    Will be the first time i've bought and used one so, not sure if i should go for the full monty, or just enough to get me started.

    Am currently looking at these 2.

    Thanks in advance..

    Either look ok, I use the hexologic pads after another detailer recommended them Only thing I'd change would be go the extra for the DAS 6 Pro, the longer lead and bigger motor are worth it.

    The smaller pads will come in handy, especially if your headlights need doing. If money is no issue buy the second one.

    I use the DAS 6 Pro with hexlogic pads and although I have very little experience using a D/a so can't comment on other types, it does the business for sure
