    The Innerflex is much softer. The LowPro is like a foam rubber.

    I've only done a couple of test spots with the foam ones.

    I wouldn't use the BnS Low Pros on a long throw. Funny thing is, they're not really low profile. I think they're GREAT on the 3401, however.

    They work awesome on the 3401, way better than the hybrids. In my climate the hybrids are a joke and the only way I could get any correction out of the 3401 was with the Low-Pro's.

    This is good to know since I am looking to add a Flex 3401 into my arsenal.

    I tend to agree with a lot of what Zubair posts. For me as well, they hydrids/force pads are way overrated.

    Well, maybe I'll have to get a 3401 now. Or just trade them.

    I think I'm going to focus on the BOSS Microfibers for cutting, and pick up some more orange and white LC Flat pads for the rest. Time will tell though.

    Just remember to get the Flex 4 3/8 bp for the Low-Pro's and the Hybrids will go in the bin or relegated to mild polishing duty.

    FWIW, I find the optimum/lake country 5.5" waffle pro orange pad to work GREAT on my current 15mm.

    Interesting, the Hybrid pads have been my go-to pads for the Flex 3401. I'll have to give these a try on the Flex. I used the green one before on the Rupes 15 for correction with good results.

    I assume that the 6.5" Low Pro pads will fit the Flex 5.5" standard backing plate and the 5.5" Low Pro pads will fit the Flex 4-3/8" backing plate?

    Which Low Pro pads (colors) are you mostly using?

    One thing I like about, and that drew me to the B&S LowPros, is that they seem like they are very solidly constructed. Something that looks like it can handle some serious abuse.
