    only reason it feels better to me than the other 3in options is simply because the weight of the Griot plate in conjunction with a heavy Force pad..it keeps machine smooth like stock where as the other options over used created an imbalance, inducing vibration.

    Main reason I really don't use the 3in option on the forced machine is. Correction is noticeably slowed down with smaller plate, may as well go with a rotary which is more powerful even though it has same effect with the smaller plate/pads

    They now have a factory 3in available over seas, definitely austrailia..haven't seen it hit USA yet
    But currently the HD 3in Griot with Force pad is best solution due to it being heavy enough to prevent imbalance
    I'll let everyone know about the factory 3in at some point
