Re: What are your thoughts ?? ( Pads )
If you can wait, I would pass on the CCS. I love all the LC pads except the CCS.
The CCS were designed with DA polishers in mind. They designed it to reduce heat and friction by putting in those dimples. This helped the weaker Porter DAs.
However, the dimples take away, IMO, a signicant amount of surface area. Sure enough pressure would push those dimples flat, but I've never been able to get a CCS pad to cut or polish as effectively when compared to the LC flats or HT.
The new LC Hybrids that have gotten great reviews are also "flat".
As for the CG Hex, they are made by B&S. They use the honeycomb hex pattern. CG orange and white pads are very durable.
May want to try LC Tangerine and Crimson for polishing and finishing.
MF for cutting.
