Im looking a smaller style pad, I'm interested in the handi puck from Autofinesse but the replacements pads are expensive

This is what I use as my hands tend to cramp when using normal pads. As far as expense is concerned any 75-100mm spot pad will fit, although I wouldn't necessarily call £4.95 expensive for a pad.

I use the Serious Performance handi puck plus these spot pads, £2.50 each.

I'm sure someone posted about a discount set of pads from AliExpress for use in this way as well.

There's quite a few cheap ones on eBay, 4 off for £2 delivered

Do the job perfect for wax application with a puck

I found one that even better value if someone fancies a punt?

Bit dubious listing but at £7 it's not going to break the bank

It is expensive per pad if you are doing quite a number of cars and not keen on rewashing them every time etc, I prefer to use clean pads
