    Lake Country Pad Help or Meguiars Pads

    I'm trying to decide on the Lake Country 5 1/2 inch Flat Foam Pads for very light polishing using Meguiar's Ultimate Polish and applying Meguiars Ultimate Wax.

    Below is the chart on AG:

    Below is a post on the forums from Mike Phillips:

    Which pad for light polishing with UP and which for ULW?


    Also, I've seen a red pad out there, and I've also heard that the LC pads like to soak up the ULW?


    SO...


    Should I just go with Meguiar's Yellow and Black, are those better anyways?

    If using LC pads, I'd go with White or Black for Megs Ultimate Polish (depending on the softness of the paint) and Blue for Megs Ultimate Wax

    If using Megs pads, Yellow or Black for UP (depending on the softness of the paint) and Black for UW.

    The LC Black and Blue and the information on the AG site is what's confusing me, so should I just ignore the following?

    If you have experience with both, which ones would you go with?

    Blue works great for gloss, but not as well for swirls.
    Black would be great for wax.

    Meguiar's - yellow for polish, black for wax.
