    Question There's a 3" backing plate, so when do we get the 3" pads?

    Any chance that we'll get 3" versions of the wonderful thin maroon, yellow and black pads that we all love so much? There are plenty of places that I need a 3" pad or smaller, and I'd really like to keep all of my pads and backing plates the same brand.

    I second the suggestion! Microfiber pads also, please! I just ordered 8 Lake Country small pads - would much prefer to have Meguiar's but I needed to have something.

    I highly doubt the 3" microfiber pads will come back. They were recently discontinued due to poor sales. You will unfortunately have to look elsewhere for 3" microfiber pads.

    Also the DA power system pads are 3" pads at the backing plate interface and flare out to about 4".

    This is true, the DA Power System pads are still available for purchase and can be used on a DA Polisher w/ a 3 inch backing plate. The part numbers are G3509, G3508, & G3507.

    This makes good sense. The reason I had hope is because someone very well known in this industry (not a Meg's employee but quite trustworthy) suggested otherwise. I'm happy to tell you who in PM. But, I already have been using LC MF 3" pads, just figured I'd throw another mention out for 3" MF pads.

    Thanks for the tip. I've tried the DA power system pads. I personally have gotten so used to the thin disks that I didn't care much for them because of the thickness. Just my experience though.

    I do hope they make a come back. 3" foam pads similar to the foam discs would be great. The burgundy foam disc is a great pad on most machines.

    I tend to cut the larger pads after so many uses into 3" pads.

    If you decide to launch 3" foam pads please make them exactly like the 5" foam discs.

    I'm with everyone here as far as pads are concerned!

    I'd love to have 3" thin foam, and a return of the microfiber!
