    What are your thoughts ?? ( Pads )

    I have been using Meguiar's W7006,W8006 & W9006 pads for a long and with exellent results.
    My question is
    If I was to try another pad what would be the best out of the 3 types to try Meguiars,Lake country's CCS or Chemical Guys Pads.
    The reason being a detailing shop has just brought in Lake country And Chemical Guys Pads. Do you stick with the devil you no or try something new ?

    Lake country's CCS range

    Lake Country Gold Concours Pad
    Lake Country Green Heavy Polishing Pad
    Lake Country Yellow Cutting Pad
    Lake Country Orange Light Cutting Pad
    Lake Country Red Finishing Pad
    Lake Country White Light Polishing Pad

    Chemical Guys

    Chemical Guys 6.5" Hex-Logic Yellow Heavy Cutting Pad
    Chemical Guys 6.5" Hex-Logic White Medium Polishing Pad
    Chemical Guys 6.5" Hex-Logic Orange Medium Cutting Pad
    Chemical Guys 6.5" Hex-Logic Green Heavy Polishing Pad
    Chemical Guys 6.5" Hex-Logic Blue Soft Polishing / Finishing

    I haven't used the CG's pads but can say that Lake Country makes outstanding pads. Personally, I prefer the hydrotech pads and absolutely love them. Eric Dunn of Lake Country twisted my arm at Detail Fest and I picked up the new hybrid power finish pads. A quick test with those last night and I am in love.

    The CCS pads will work great for you. I like to get several of each if you can. Orange, White, Black and Blue (or red) are my basics and are "typically" used in that order for correction. Of course, always start with the least aggressive method.

    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.
