    I would stick to the recommendations from Lake Country here from the Autopia Store, or wherever you shop -- https://www.autopia-carcare.com/lake...ds-5-inch.html

    I prefer the CCS.

    The run smooth, seem to keep the heat down, maintain rotation nicely.

    Wax/sealant application is where I like a flat pad.

    Re: Ordering CCS foam pads help.

    Older thread and I’m sure the OP probably got what they needed by now.

    Pads like CCS with dimples, hexagons, cross groves, zig zags, pentagrams or any other silly design in them do nothing besides make the pad harder to clean. It’s just a gimmick. It doesn’t matter if you are using a free spinning DA, a forced rotation DA or a Rotary. They don’t run cooler either.

    People will argue that waffle style pads will do some of these things on a rotary. Same load of crap there.

    If anything, these areas hold polish that can be released in the latter stages of a buffing cycle which can be working backwards if using diminishing abrasives.

    I tried the ccs pads. I didn`t care for them either. Definitely would never buy again. Fact is used them once and tossed them. Expensive lesson to learn.

    Like coleroad, I agree wholeheartedly! Also like coleroad, I wasted some of my $ on `em as some here kept insisting that they were good; should`ve just stuck with my initial skepticism.

    Re: Ordering CCS foam pads help.

    LC CCS pads are tricky. Personaly, I don`t find them to provide a linear cut difference from black to yellow like the charts show. And they "act" differently. White absorbs like crazy. Green acts like a hydrotech. Orange does NOT cut like they imply.

    The CCS 5" green is a perfect workhorse for polishing. But I know a lot of people dislike the green.

    I tried the CCS a long time ago. They made my hair fall out
