My first 4" Lake Country backing plate broke down at the end of the first use (approx 3 hrs), so the Lake Country people kindly replaced it with the new one. This one lasted a bit longer, about 4hrs, but that was it. The original Flex 5.5" plate works fantastic, after hundreds of hours of detailing.
Pros:Can be used with various polishing pads
Cons:Made of low quality plastic that doesn't last long. I suggest that manufacturer either improve the quality of the materials used (to match the quality of the machine), or discontinue this product immediately.
