I have a powerball mini and it is a total rip off. After polishing my TTIIs there is hardly any powerball left, the thing falls apart WAY too quick to have cost $20.

I've got a powerball mini

which worked decent... but like earlier post said, that bad boy falls apart if you apply any pressure.

Mine is still OK, but I'm going to look into that flitz ball thing..

There is a post in the FAQ on the Wheels & Tires forum regarding polishing wheels.

I have the powerball mini for my chrome rims, and that works fine because I dont need that much pressure, but as far as polished rims, I used to have a set of TTIIs and I have no doubt in my mind that the mini wouldnt survive a polishing like that
