    I may be new to this but I would think that "best" when it comes to pad choice for the M1205 or M205 (or really any compound or polish) comes down to the requirement of the vehicle you are working on.

    For example, a wool pad is a fairly heavy cutting pad so using a wool pad with M105 is going to have a lot of cutting power for very severe damage needing a lot of correction.
    On the other hand, if you are only trying to remove some minor swirl marks that a wool pad with M105 is probably going to be way overkill.

    I just used the M105/M205 combo for the first time. I had a lot of swirls and holograms to remove plus a few places with sanding marks from previous wet sanding.
    I used on a pretty mild gray foam pad with the M105 and a even softer blue pad with the M205 and it got out pretty much 98%-99% of all the flaws in the paint.

    If there was more serious scratches or other flaws I might have gone to a more aggressive pad such as an orange or yellow pad with the M105 but on this car it wasn't needed.

    On the other hand, my daily driver car (Lexus) has never had a serious detail on it and it's a 1994 model with almost 250,000 miles and is kept outside. I will probably need at least an orange, of not possibly the yellow foam pad with the m105 on that car and who knows, I might have to go with a wool pad on it.

    Point is, what is "best" will vary depending on the paint on the car, the condition of that paint, and what's required to correct it.
