    I switched my boat detailing classes over to the RUPES wool pads. I like them.

    I’m also a fan of the same Rupes pads. They come in 5,6 and 6.5 inches. I think they are balanced very well.

    They have a good amount of blow off on the first use. I suggest really spurring them heavily b4 first use. After that, they are a dream to use.

    I'm confident you will like these new wool cutting pads.

    Be sure to also have a spur to clean the pad on-the-fly.


    Speed Master Wool Pad Cleaning Wheel



    After cleaning the wool pad in the pad cleaner Tyler then re-fluffs the wool fibers using a steel pad cleaning spur.







    The above take from this class 8+ years ago....

    Lake Country Purple or Blue and I too have used Rupes. I personally have standardized on Lake Country to keep things simple and they work and finish out great.
