    Re: Review: Griot's G9 - 9mm Orbit Stroke Random Orbital Polisher by Mike Phillips

    I started off with a GG6. Got the G9 when it first came out. I played around with 5.5" & 6.5" BOSS pads and the standard thickness Griot's pads when I was doing my wife's Q5. I was impressed with how well the G9 kept even the "thick" 6.5" pads turning. I don't think you'll be let down sticking with the 6/6.5" pads.

    I agree, the new G9 has plenty of power, I prett sure I pointed this out in my review.

    The only reason I use and steer other people to use smaller diameter pads than the normal 6.5" pads is not due to pad rotation, (with this specific tool), it's because smaller pads fit body panel designs better.

    I've been meaning to take some pictures to show what I mean but the nutshell version is - it's a good practice to NOT buff on edges or raised body lines, accepting this as good protocol, then smaller pad fit smaller body panel designs better than larger pads.
