Default using powerball - does it fling polish all over the place?

This is my main concern. Since the powerball is... well, a ball, spinning with a drill - wouldnt this cause the powerpolish to fly all over the place and side to side?

That's why you start the drill at low speed to spread the polish before increasing the drill speed.

Default Re: using powerball - does it fling polish all over the place?

I just bought this powerball today. Let me tell you, it does fling the polish if you start off fast. What I was doing was testing, I would hold the drill at a very slow speed to move the polish over the (almost) entire rim first and then let her rip. Worked well. Minimal flingage.
