Dual Action Pads

Im in the "summer" mood and want to start restocking my cleaning arsenal for when Michigan stops having its bipolar weather. My dual action pads are basically shot, when I bought them I didn't the best care of them so its time for new ones. I currently have the Chemical Guys Hex Logic pads that came with my porter cable 7427. I have a backing plate that accommodates their 5.5" pads, so i would like to get some around the same size. I am also in the market for smaller diameter pads as well. Any help would be great, I have no major ties to chemical guys so i am open to trying out new pads.


Link to kit that i have:

I use griots garage 5.5" BOSS pads on my GG6 with great results. Can't help much with smaller pads, but am researching a 3" polisher now.
I really like the Rupes foam pads. It really depends what you want to do. I have heard great things about the Meguiars microfiber cutting and finishing pads. That is next on my list to try. The Rupes pads work great, but from what I hear, microfiber is easier to manage residue.
I used Lake Country flat pads for my GG6 & Rupes 15 Mark 2 and now use Lake Country ThinPro pads. I haven't had any issues or complaints with either.
I saw autogeek is having a 25% off with free shipping this weekend. With that said, I have used lake country pads, chemical guys pads, and a few others and only ever really had one or two pads go bad on me. I tried some microfiber ones and found that they were more maintenance intensive than foam. Just get a few different styles and see what you like best.
