Foam VS Microfiber Applicator pads

What's better for applying polish and wax by hand?

I have SRP and Colonite insulator wax (liquid).

Is foam better for one and microfiber better for the other or does it not matter at all?

I always swore by foam but watched a Mitchel & king video where he used a damp microfiber pad and since then, never used foam.

srp works well with the ag polish applicator just give it a spritz of water or qd first
generally apply glazes with a microfibre applicator and waxes with a wo-wo foam one

Ok this kind of answers my question. I was looking at the AF Micro Fibre and Foam applicators. They're only £1 each so I'll grab one of each and see how I get on.

The farecla hand polish pads are very good. White one to get more bite then the black one for wax
