    This right here is what its all about! Hats off to you WRAPT C5Z06 for reaching out & lending a hand. This is why I enjoy being on this forum.

    Hands on learning is easier than trying to learn from reading, as sometimes the way people interpret things aren't always the same. Mike Phillips has a gift in being able to write things so as people can understand it. Jump at the chance to have WRAPT C5Z06 show you some things, I guarantee it'll be worth it. I agree also in regards to picking up some Meguiars Ultimate Compound, its easy to work with & it gets good results. Its an over the counter product too & good value.

    The Orange Hybrid is useless to me in the summer months as it instantly turns into a finishing pad and has almost zero cut. The Blue Hybrid then came in to save the day. I can't believe AG still keeps the outdated Hybrid pads when the rest of the world is using the far superior Force pads. Atleast other online sites stock the latest greatest.

    This I agree with, the Force pads are great. But I use them mainly for finishing.
    Finishing with a giant 5" or 3" Black or red oversized pad just awesome.
    Then the smaller 2" & 1" pads are basically, HD pads can't tell the dif. Better price point though.

    Yep, in warmer temps, the orange pad really softens and the cut is reduced. If it's cold, it will cut good. I don't prefer a pad that's so heavily affected by temperature. A lot are to some degree, but the orange hybrid is very susceptible.

    I had a meeting with a couple of local detailers yesterday. The host had some of those force pads. No way that grey pad is going to soften up - at least I don't believe so. That think feels like a brick!

    I tried the force grey pad with the 3401 and the pad was just way too stiff. Not a good user experience at all. Won't use it again.

    When I use HD Speed it is normally with the White Hybrid on my Flex. I have used it with the orange pads but as an AIO it just isn't made for heavy cutting. Glad you have an offer for assistance. Keep up the good work on the forum guys.

    I haven't used the orange force yet. Does it retain cut after warming up?

    The white is super on paint and the grey for headlights worked wonderful

    The Orange Hybrid and Orange Force use the same foam that does not work well at all in warmer climates.
