Menzerma Range and these pads..?

Has anyone tried out the Menzerna polish/compound range? Just thinking of getting the Medium Cut 2200 to use with my ChemicalGuys Green and Orange Hexlogic Pads? Was just wondering if anyone else uses this combo and what they think?

Second question is, i recently found these pads on amazon https://www.amazon.co.uk/SPTA-6inch-...words=hexlogic . Looks like a copy of the ChemicalGuys Hexlogic pads... Has anyone used them and what comparison do they have compared to the actual Chemical Guys ones?

I have used the Flexipads before and they are fine, not everyone like them but I have never had a problem with them. As an aside, the amazon link says there were originally over £40. I would doubt this, the CG pads would not be this expensive.

If you want a good place to buy pads then have a look at the Serious Performance section http://www.seriousperformance.co.uk/Products,124.html

If budget allows, try to buy several of each grade of pad, polishing will be easier if you do.

For me, Menzerna make the best polishes on the market.

It's all I use in my detailing workshop.

For pads, I don't like the type in your link, I much prefer flat pads from Menzerna and Lake Country.

I prefer abrasives which do not break down eg Megs but there is no doubt Menzerna sell some very good products so if you fancy the Menz range then you will be fine. Cannot keep up with the name changes though......

I use Menz almost all the time and more often than not with hex pads. Makes for a formidable correction kit

Does the orange and green pads work well with the 2200 then? then was thinking of using the 3500 with the white pad?

Yes, those are good polish and pad combos. Try the green pad and 2200 first. If you are not getting enough defect removal then try it with the orange pad. The follow that up with the 3500 and the white pad if you want a little more polishing and improve gloss or a black pad if you just want to amp the gloss more.
