    NEW: What size pads do you use? (Updated 2009)

    I noticed the previous poll was quite dated and only had the option of 6 or 8 inch pads. So this poll is now updated with options that more realistically outline the options we have today.


    NOTE THAT I ENABLED MULTIPLE OPTIONS...if you feel that 2 or 3 choices fit you, by all means, choose those!

    I checked the new 2.0 pads.
    quality creates its own demand

    I've never tried the new pads. Do you need a new backing plate for the 2.0 pads?

    the W68 backing plate is designed for the 2.0 pads. But the W67 will work fine too. I have used the W67 with the 2.0 pads and they work great,

    I only have the 2.0 pads. I haven't had my g110 for long.
    I have plenty of foam and even coat applicators for edges, tight spots and very concave areas.

    After using 5.5" pads on the PC, I'll never use a larger pad. 4" and 5.5" pads on the PC
