Cool Look what we got.....

Paddy328 and I decided we'd find out more about the opportunities for wool pads, so went halves on a bulk order from the US for these babies...



pretty much a full set of Edge 2K wool pads, minus the white finishing wool as we both already had decent finishing pads Shame the green was OOS in 6" size so we got the big mama size, but if it proves as useful as i hope then I'll pick one up somewhere.

Going to start practicing on the spare bonnet and find out what they can do. A quick play on Marc's a while ago makes me think they will be nice and smooth to use, and the blue and green are not very aggressive so hopefully will work well for general swirl removal with my Mystique, fairly quickly and with low heat

Now where is my pad spur

Nice

I'm really liking my wool pads right now, most notably the LakeCountry white light cutting wool... fast, effective defect removal

I assume that Wool pads on non Rotary are pointless?

yep - make a mess of swirls I'm led to believe...

James - these seem pretty much impossible to get in the UK. Marc (Krystal Kleen) is your man though as he can source the Presta wool which are made by Edge and exactly the same. They are a bit pricey though compared to the US....
