    Well these pads were made specifically for forced rotation. I think thinner ones were getting blown out by the heat and never heard anyone talk about that being the reason but who knows.

    I know Mike mentions using the side but I’ll stick with my mini polishers personally

    Thanks guys. I use the force pads for my BEAST, but it has been some time since I lurked around the forums. Was just curious if these were still recommended.

    So do you use the edge of the pad for getting into tight spaces?
