    Okay, so I'm going to order the PC 7336. I just need a small bit of help with the pads. Do you guys recommend 6inch or 6.5inch pads??

    Also, in the 6 inch the cutting pad is yellow, and it's orange for the 6.5 inch. Is one more agressive than the other? Which do you guys like?


    Thanks!

    I've never used their pads. Your best bet is to post this on autopia or e-mail Lake Country directly.

    IIRC, he uses Meg's.

    Just got my PC last month.. I'm using a 5" flexible backing plate w/ 6.5" LC pads from Top of the Line.

    LC pad comparison chart - http://www.lakecountrymfg.com/padappguide.html It looks like the yellow is a bit more aggressive than the orange. The orange pad worked fine for me.

    I tore both of my white LC polishing pads before I even got through one complete car with either one. Some ripping just past the edge of the velcro. I didn't think I was using too much pressure, especially with the second one. LC rep that posts on Autopia said he thinks it was caused by too much pressure and there's not much he can do. But then offered to warranty exchange them if I sent em back, but he ignored my request through PM for the address. Guess I'll be trying another brand :dunno: :hs:

    I've been using Megs and LC pads for the past few months and like using them both. My personal preference is towards the Megs polishing pads and then the LC light cut pads. That's just my experience. I just ordered some Edge pads and I'm going to try them out as well.

    Master Miyagi was wrong because he didn't teach the karate kid to go in the direction that wind flows, HA!
