    Re: Lake Country ThinPro Foam Buffing Pads exclusively at Autogeek

    From the description it looks like these pads are much firmer. It would be nice to have a firm black pad. I almost never use black pads any more because they're so soft that they morph too much when using them and don't finish well. How does the Lake Country Black compare to the Meguiar's Black in terms of density/firmness?

    Thats why i just use LC pads the thick ones for those areas and it spins and rotates fine.

    That is on a da of course the flex will have no problem no matter what you stick on it
    It is my understanding that a thinner hence lighter pad has less energy being lost and will be more likely to maintain rotation. Either way I can't wait to get my grubby lil paws on these and the Buff and Shine Low-Pro's and compare the grey vs green in outright cut. Whichever has more cut, thats the ones I will be reordering on a regular basis.

    All Lake Country black pads are soft finishing pads but compared to other brands they firmer and to me the reason they finish better: Soft+Firm makes for nice jeweling and uniform results.

    They help increase rotation and correction on flat panels or little concave areas.

    On a curved edge . They struggle because the pad does not have enough foam to mold and shape into that contour, all thin pads do.

    Just keep some LC pads when you want to use the da Or just use the flex

    "Each pad utilizes a new foam composition that promises to withstand the rigorous abuse of long-throw orbital polishers, like the Rupes LHR 15 and 21ES and Griotís Garage Boss G15 and G21 polishers. A super strong adhesive used for attaching the backing material to the foam pad provides a rugged attachment point that is virtually indestructible, even after extended polishing sessions."


    ThinPro pads are available in 5.5" diameter and 6.5" pads.

    Re: Lake Country ThinPro Foam Buffing Pads exclusively at Autogeek

    I am curious, would these require more frequently cleaning since they are so much thinner?

    IMO, the surface of the pad does all the work so in terms of cleaning, shouldnt makes any difference.

    The size are really optimal with DA. If they punch a 1.5cm hole in the center, my guess is the pad may works even better.
