    For defect removal invest in a proper Dual Action polisher or Rotary, combined with the correct pads and polishes you will see a far bigger improvement, the polishing head needs to progressively generate a little heat to brake down the micro abrasives in the polishes and level of the swirls and random scratches.
    Whist I agree a professional dual action polisher is always the best, the original poster seems fairly new to this and its didn't sound like he wanted to spend ££££ on a polishing machine, hence the recommendation for the 240V units which I have used for years and been happy with for what they can do for the money.

    Z-5 is purely a LSP, when combined with ZFX it allows you to layer one after the other without having to wait, thus creating a protective durable finish, it uses an american terminology calling itself a polish but it is a pure sealant, I've had 6-12 months durability from this on customers cars without the need for a wax to top of with.
    You would need the AIO (all in one) or pc-fusion to prep and cleanse the panel first, then top of with either Z-2 or Z-5.

    Fair play, I've tried the polisher you mentioned and didn't rate it to much effect, but if it works for you then fair enough.

    Never had anything like 12 months protection from it...
    Agreed its not a polish as the name claims, but will still fill lighter swirls leaving a better finish then SRP. SRP may be a heavier polish and fill faster, but not to the same finish.

    Hardly answering the original question here.
