    They are terrible when used via a DA, I only use 3m pads with rotary. You will struggle to beat CG's pads for a DA.

    I don't use 3M pads, I use the hexlogic ones. Main three I use are orange (medium cutting) for cutting back paintwork, blue (medium polishing) for polishing after cutting and black (finishing) for final polishing and sealing/glazing (although I usually do the sealant/glaze by hand).

    Edit: CG = Chemical Guys, they make the hexlogic pads

    Chemical guys hex pads. White or orange for vectra paint, and black for finishing. Pretty much the same as Ian.
