Meguiars DA Microfiber Cutting Pads

Having read the various marketing material around these, they seem to be saying I should be using the specially formulated correction compound that Meguiars sell. I've currently got a full set of Menzerna polishes including their heavy cut ones so wondered if I'd be ok using these with the pads or if I really do need to buy their cutting compound.

Meguiars released the product as a correction system. They would like you to use their products.

Of course you can use any polish you like with the pad. You will just have to experiment with getting it primed, how much pressure and what speed to use.

I've used them with Koch Chemie lack blau and Auto Finesse Revitalise #1 without any problems (on hard BMW paint).

It just happens that their MF cutting compound is also actually really good. Love working with it.

Agree the D300 correction compound is great to use. I personally felt it was the microfibre cutting discs that were the weak point of the system. Lake country microfibres are much better and make the finishing stage a lot easier. With any microfibre cutting pad be careful as they cut quickly with any compound. Make sure you have total coverage of the fibres or they can cause marring on the paint. That said don't overload the pad either or you won't get the results you could possibly expect.

Give it a go for sure, but keep in mind that the D300 is specifically made and lubed for the MF pads. It is awesome to use! It's also nice to use as a 1-step polish on foam pads. It's also a SMAT polish which keeps the cutting consistent and leaves a very good finish. A lot of other compounds I've tried tend to clog the pads up prematurely.

Do you mean the new white/blue pad? What makes it better than Megs?
