I use the in2detailing big wash pad it's almost identical to the incredipad XL by microfiber madness

But costs alot less, it's still top quality korean fiber

Super thick possibly thicker that the incredipad great quality,

And just under 12 quid delivered as opposed to nearly 20 quid for the incredipad without delivery

Looks like the fear of dropping a pad on the floor is winning this vote at the moment

That is true it seams, its funny as in the 5 years of driving I think i,ve dropped my mitt more that my pad, either trying to get it on my hand to quickly and dropping it or not using it as a mitt and because their is less to hold on it dropping, a few times the mitt has been so saturated and heavy with water its slid right of my hand

I use a big pad for top half and mitts for lower half and wheels

I don't think their is a right or wrong answer its mainly preference I guess.

If we all operated in the same way their would be no new ideas so this diversity can only be a good thing

Dooka pad for me is my favourite. For things that are less important I use the microfibre madness mit but as a pad.

Mitt for me, much more ‘feel’ with it.

Been using mitts for ages as a few years back there was no choice but recently got a Microfibre Incredipad and its so much better. Holds more wash solution which you can squeeze onto the panel as you go. Still use my mitt for the mucky lower areas though.

I'm quite shocked at the results TBH. I really don't like pads. Always feel like I'm going to drop it, it's always slower going getting in around the mirrors / more intricate parts and you can't regulate the pressure on your panels as well as a mitt (e.g with a pad you always have to have a certain amount of pressure on a vertical panel like a door, where as with a mitt you can have as little pressure on there as you like.)

Had a Dooka, just didn't like it, have an Incredimitt now, suits me perfect,
