    I like the Lake Country Hydrotech Cyan (blue) cutting pads.

    They're a little temperamental, and need to be "babied" a bit. However, the cut to gloss ratio is ridiculous.

    Due to the nature of their foam composition, they can wear faster than open cell pads. They also hold heat. After washing, make sure the foam is cometpletely dry before using, or the water trapped in the cells will heat up, expand, and rupture, causing the center to concave. Keep push and residue from building up on the face of the pad, otherwise it will force it's way into the closed cells of the pad, rupturing them, causing the foam to shed.

    Griots 3" BOSS pads are nice also. They are the same as their larger ones.

    The microfiber cutting pads are great!

    Completely agree, until these pads were released I was still upset about Megs discontinuing their 3 inch MF pads but the 3" boss MF pads are so much better, Megs can go fly a kite as far as I'm concerned.lol

    What makes them better than Megs? I have used Megs, Buff and Shine(old ones with a hole), Lake Country new ones, Flexipads and Rupes. I like Megs, Lake Country and Buff and Shine most. Does Boss mf pad cut more and is more durable than megs? Lake Country and Buff and Shine are very durable. Megs is not asdurable but i still like it.
