I agree .
Stainless media was always the better faster way but they put forward , slower systems , like corn cob and walnut shell to slow people down so they spend more money in the long run .
There is no reason to have to run a case polisher all night other than the media is too slow in action and the tumbling system too slow in rotation or it's a vibrator which is always slower .
A lot would depend on where you lived and how close the neighbours are etc.
I could not run my tumblers all night , it would cause trouble so I have to use a faster system .
Everyone has different circumstances so one size does not fit all but I like STM .
