      i use a 2 stage high shine with carbides for anatomy. depending on the depth of the grooves i run a 1/2 round DULL carbide through first, then a 1/4 round DULL carbide. dull is important, it does a decent job high shining without cutting new grooves. then i use the premounted rubber points (blue, dont recall brand) to enhance the surrounding area shine and finalize with tripoli and rouge with a stiff robinson brush and cotton buff.

      Dedeco also makes a Blue Clasp Polisher (#4593) but that's a box of 100. They're unmounted, so you'd need to get the spiral pointed burs for them. At that quantity, it may be more than you're looking for, but they may be cheaper in the long run than pre-mounted?

      Tayeb, are those the size of a mandrel, and fit right into the straight handpiece? Sounds like they cover a lot of bases.

      Nice follow up image. So you can cut them to a length that gives you the greatest handpiece control and feel. That is really nice.
