    Dont they have the same internals, just externally different? If so, I'd get the second gen, it's prob cheaper, but same guts, different shell.....may be wrong though
    Back to the full-time grind.

    I prefer Meg's pads, but LC pads are fine for the casual detailer.

    LC pads:

    White/Green: Polish

    Gray, red, blue, gold: lsp/wax .

    Orange: light/medium cut

    Yellow: heavy cut

    I have the second gen and I would recommend the third gen. The switches are in super inconvenient locations.

    I like LC pads but you should try the CG Hex Pads also very nice. I just demoed LC CCS, CG Hex Pads & LC Hybrid pads on a Flex 3401. All nice pads. Previously used the CCS & Hex pads on a PC and RB.
