Pad choice's

Have been using some yellow and orange pads (cannot recall the make, but bought from Clean Your Car) on a DA sander for a while, but they are now starting to disintegrate, so thinking about replacements. However there are so many out there to choose from, although Hexlogic sound good.

I am not into detailing to the Nth degree, and do not intend to go on a spending spree on products, but I do like our cars to look good. In the cupboard I already have some Menzerna PF2400 (medium cut) and AG SRP (Finish) and some Bilt Hamber Double Speed Wax and QD spray to protect the shine.

In the fleet are a Suzuki Swift (soft paint?), the Saab 9-5 (medium paint?) and a VW Polo (hard paint?). Less bothered on the Polo, as it's now my daughters University hack and unlikely to get washed whilst she is away!!!

A Hexlogic guide in a post I found suggested:-
Hard: - Yellow (cut), Green (polish), Blue (finish)
Medium: - Orange (cut), White (polish), Black (finish)
Soft: - Green (cut), Blue (polish), Black (finish)

So what 2 or 3 pads might cover all my needs? I may look to replace the DA sander with a DAS6, as the sander gets heavy after a while, and the latest DAS6 v2 on CyC weights less than 2kg.

Thanks.
