    Lake Country HDO Foam vs Hydro-Tech Foam

    Hi all,

    I was looking to see if anyone knew much about the difference between the two pads? Thanks!

    Lake Country HDO 5.5 Inch Foam Pads

    ORIGINAL 5.5 x 1.25 Inch Hydro-Tech Tangerine Ultra Polishing Foam Pad

    Thanks in advance!

    HDO = Open Cell

    Hydro = Closed Cell

    Go with open cell.

    I was typing from my phone at the end of a long day yesterday, so kind of a brief answer.

    Here's the deal, closed cell foam has less tensile strength compared to open cell foam. This shows up to you as foam that tears more easily and wears out faster.

    Me?

    I'm an open cell foam kind of guy.
