Not blown away
June 26, 2014
I love Rupes!!!! I don't know where I would be without them and my 21 throw bigfoot. Which is why I was really counting on the pad to come through for me. It cuts pretty well and i understand the reason for the holes in the pad, but to be totally honest the pad seems to get gunked up a lot faster (and I always clay bar before I buff). Then when I try to clean the pad with a micro-fiber then compressed air (for the sake of working clean) the pile on the pad starts to break up. Almost seems when done working with it you think I buffed three cars. Wears a lot faster. the cutting is pretty good ill give it that , but I prefer using the meguiars micro-fiber cutting pads. I clean my pad after each panel with a fine brush then compressed air . then every couple weeks a thorough cleaning with a light cleanser with water and they last way longer!! Over happy but not blown away.
Pros:Good cutting abilities
Cons:pile doesn't hold its integrity.
