Just got my 7424 today. I have one question, is it okay to use the counterweight for 6" pads with a 6.5" pad? Or is there a 6.5" counterweight? Sorry if this seems like a stupid question to you, but I want to be sure.

Hi CL9 Nyte Ryder,

One of our members and a seasoned professional who details cars everyday posted his experiment on this subject.


The Dual Action Counterweight 'Controversy' (http://meguiarsonline.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&postid=24437)

I have one DA in our shop that is a few years old. It was supplied with a 6" counterweight to replace the standard 5".

The theory being that the 6" lessens vibration when using 6" pads.

So I just acquired a second, with supplied 5" counter weight.

No perceptible difference. None Zilch, Nada.

End of 'controversy', at least in my shop.
