While catching the tail end of Rides the other day the annoying TV announcer voice came on — you know, the one with the blue screen at the end saying things like “for a limited time only” and “but wait, there’s more!” He was singing the praises of yet another “once in a life time opportunity, the Flitz system.”
The Flitz system promises to be a revolutionary polishing kit for the masses. Before you get too excited, you should know that it doesn’t come with the drill in the picture. What it does come with is a 50gr/1.76oz tube of metal polish, a polishing and buffing ball, a microfiber polishing cloth, five “trial size” metal polish packets, and $20 in coupons for “future use” (read: ways to hock this stuff to your friends).
We couldn’t really find any reason why this stuff is better than normal metal polish or even if it’s different at all. It looks to be a regular polishing product encased in some spiffy-looking packaging, but we can’t confirm that for sure. If any of you Toolmongers out there have taken the plunge – or were bored watching infomercials and decided you had some extra cash on hand and wound up using this, drop us a line and let us know how it went.
Street Pricing is $29.95 and is available on the flitztv.com website. However, we suspect it will only be a matter of time till Flitz will be at your local Big Lots (or equivalent store) marked $5.99 clearance.
