    the BOSS microfiber pads have been upgraded to white microfiber (previously black) with the red foam interface. on the sister site they have the black microfiber shown/listed while on AG they show the white. i would call (ACC) ahead and make sure and see which one they have in-stock so you don't get the wrong one pictured and the right one you want. they both (ACC/AG) could have the same (newer) stock but just didn't update the pic on the ACC site...

    Thanks, so it is a cutting/compounding pad, i thought so. I'm not in the market for any pads just wanted to make sure it wasn't a microfiber polishing pad if i decided to use it on my car this year.

    they also have a microfiber finishing pad (was previously black microfiber but now white as well) that isn't part of the thinner BOSS line of pads that have a thicker red foam interface which isn't as aggressive...

    Its relatively high pile thats why i'm wondering how aggressive it really is - megs cutting discs for example are very thin with low pile compared to the BOSS ones i have. I have used it on a junk panel but not much.
    Those were the finishing micro fibers I believe. I have the cutting MF boss pads and they have zero foam just microfiber on a piece of fabric attached to velcro.

    The Griots Fast Finishing MF pads red foam interface has been changed. The new ones are stiffer and have a centering hole. good changes.

    I never got any pads like that with my kit. If i do use it, i will keep it in mind. I'm thinking now it might be a finishing pad. Interesting for a one step actually with a light polish...get little more cut out of light polishes.

    Thanks!
