Junk
This item is junk. Purchased one with my original Flex a year ago, failed a year later. Purchased a new one to replace that one and it failed with 5 minutes. Literally 5 minutes I couldn't believe it. Contacted AG a week ago and haven't heard anything. Will be emailing them again. This thing is junk, both failed at the base where the bolt connects to the flex.

Quality issues
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.
ProsCan be used with various polishing pads
ConsMade 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.

tried again but....
I left a review last April about the problem I had with this product. Auto geek really came through and replaced it but unfortunately the same thing happened.. it got too hot and cracked. I will have to buy the original replacement now

Very poor durability
I used it for about 5 hours combined before it broke. The gear plate combined with the 6 inch backing plate both shattered at the screw & washer I contacted Autogeek about this, but I didn't get an offer to have another kit sent. ;/

nice addition
I bought this system and I used it for about 3 hours. Since the xc3401 tends to get pretty hot, the plastic around the screw & washer got brittle and cracked using the larger backing plate. I called autogeek and they sent out another kit the next day. I haven't used it yet so I can't say how this one will hold up. One thing that I didn't like was that the screw & washer are a different size than the original. The Allen wrench needed is a different size also and is not supplied. Other than that, I think it will be a great tool
