    Looking to buy pads, could use some assistance

    I`m overthinking things as usual, ordering a new Dewalt cordless DA polisher Monday and need pads. I don`t really think anyone here has used it so I guess just posting for some general feedback. My old pads were Scholl Concept Spider, which I liked. But I want to try something new and something that`s readily available and not just 1 place in the US. I know a lot of thing is a personal preference thing, but just based off the machines specs would anyone here go with one of these over the other if they were buying this.

    Buff & Shine Uro-Tech

    Dewalt`s site claims a 2.1 INCH THROW, which is uh, not anywhere close to accurate lol. Googling I found 2 people who said 12mm and 2 who said 15mm. This is the internet though so I understand both answers could still be wrong. I know both pads I asked about would be awesome and I`m just overthinking, but people on here know so much more than I do so I`m asking to maybe get an experts opinion. And this is Autopia so who knows it`s possible someone owns the polisher and has both pads lol. I never under estimate the purchasing power of some of the elite fellas here.

    In terms of buying and selecting, Griot`s are the most user friendly
    Treat it like it`s the only one in the world.

    2 votes for Griots, and a local detailer I know I just ran into at the store said the new Rupes pads and DA system are something I should look into. Maybe I`ll order a set of the BOSS & Rupes to try them out. I`ll be ordering Rupes Uno Protect and my OCD will trigger if I don`t have at least 1 Rupes pad to use with it lol.

    Thanks for the replies, Griot always seems to elude my brain when I`m thinking about detailing products, not sure why.

    Rupes yellow foam and Yellow wool. The Rupes blue wool are also nice. The LC HDO`s are nice pads. The blue HDO is not the most aggressive cutting pad but they are pretty good. The orange HDO would be another solid choice after the Rupes yellow.

    Agree with Guz, yellow Rupes wool is very nice. Also like the B&S Uro-fiber pads
