Polished but not quite enough

Just had my first go with the das6 pro and menzerna polish with flexipads. i did a test panel on the bonnet with the 3000 polish (final finish) and the firm polish pad. this worked a treat so did the whole bonnet but it has left one or 2 what i can only assume is deeper swirls. Would it be best to do another round with the same combo or go for a same polish but a cutting pad or polish pad with more aggresive polish?

I'd hit it again with the lighter combo before stepping up now. Test again on another panel after this if you want to try a heavier cut combo.

What grade is the pad sounds like a polishing pad not finishing.

I was using the yellow polishing flexipad with Menzerna FF. It did a great job on the test panel but in other areas it left one or two deeper swirls in there. I was pretty pleased with the results but would have liked to have corrected it fully. I will try another hit on it next weekend, its Ford paint so may be slighter harder than I thought.
