Which pad is which?

I bought some spot pads from you ages ago when you were having a big sale but I can't remember what each one is for. One is orange the other is blue and they're non branded (not megs, menz etc)? I can get a photo up later if you're not sure. TIA

Without knowing the make of the pads it's difficult to say exactly what they are.

However, in general terms, an orange pad is a polishing pad whilst the blue is probably a finishing pad. The orange should be quite stiff whilst the blue pad is softer.

I think they were PB own brand, as I said there is no name on them but I bought them from there. I did feel the foam for stiffness and TBH they felt very similar which why I'm not sure.

I would of thought when you bought the pads you had some polishing in mind and therefore purchased a polishing pad and a finishing pad to be able to do some correction polishing and then refining.

Only you can remember why you bought them but the above is my logical suggestion confirming my first reply.

Yes that's true but I also bought them cos they were reduced?!!!

Like I said I they both feel the same so not sure which is which but most likely a polishing and finishing pad.

Why not give both of them a try with the same polish - that'll quickly provide the answer!

Probably cyan and tangerine Lake Country Hydro-Tech pads.

If they're the same as the set I got when PB did a clearance sale a couple of years back then the orange is a cutting pad and the blue is polishing - there was also a red pad for finishing/glazing. If you're not sure put up a pic and I'll see if they're the same .

I think you're spot on Mike; they sound like the old Flexipads line we did a few years ago (orange light cut, blue polishing, red finishing).

Yes they're the ones I bought, I remember the red one as well now but I think you had sold out when I ordered. I can write on the back what they are now, cheers

Got a few RDS's I need to tackle so was going to try these out as I forgot about them until recently.
