An updated version of a tried & true pad system. 

Meguiar's 7" Professional Soft Buff Rotary Foam Buffing Pads are the latest series of traditional-sized pad offered by the marvelous minds at Meguiar's. Three grades of foam ensure that just about any polishing task can be comfortably & efficiently accomplished. They can be used with a wide variety of buffing liquids (compounds, polishes, waxes), and are machine washable.

 Maroon Foam Cutting Pads. 
Typical foam cutting pads can leave paint surfaces scoured with a layer of fine, hazy scratch marks. Not so with these beauties! Remarkably, Meguiar's 7" Foam Cutting Pads will rarely scour even the most delicate of paint finishes.

 Yellow Foam Polishing Pads. 
It's no secret that Meguiar's Yellow Foam Polishing Pads have been an industry standard for decades. Compared to their maroon counterparts, Meguiar's 7" Yellow Foam Polishing Pads feature improved contourability. A great choice for general polishing tasks. 

 Black Foam Finishing Pads. 
Newly formulated foam is superior to all previous offerings (no small feat!). Fast becoming the go-to pad for high grade, critical polishing tasks. Non-marring, low-clog foam. The perfect choice for final polishing tasks, or for applying glazes, polishes, waxes, and sealants.

For optimum performance:
These pad should be used in conjunction with a Meguiar's Professonal Backing Plate.

For use with random orbital or dual action machines:
Meguiar's DBP6 Soft Buff  6" D/A Polisher Backing Plate.

For use with rotary machines:

The benchmark of foam pad systems.

Meguiar's introduced the world to foam pad technology way back in 1965.  It was dubbed the Buffmaster Wooless Wonder because until that time, the only buffing pads available were comprised of wool and other stringy materials.

Wool can leave noticeable string marks in the paint, often referred to as swirls.  These pads won't!  Three grades of pad allow you to choose the right one for the task at hand.  They can be used with a wide variety of compounds, polishes, and waxes.

These pads are very durable and machine washable.

The  maroon  pad is stiffer than the others, and is designed to  be used for heavy defect removal and surface leveling.

These pads cut fast, leave a nice finish, and they don't feel like you're steering a land yacht while you polish!

Originally designed as an integral part of the Meguiar's So1o™ One Liquid System, these pads have since become top sellers.  To create this duo, the guys at Meguiar's played with dozens of designs.  They relentlessly tweaked, tuned, and finagled to create the beauties you see here.  I especially like how agile and spartan Solo pads feel- not bulky or puffy like heavier pads.

The one-inch long wool fibers are attached to a flat backing, so they lay down a rather large footprint compared to wool pads that feature a curved backing.   A small detail perhaps, but one that delivers a large benefit- accurate placement of the buffing pad.  How so?  

Oftentimes, curved-back pads obscure the edges of panels, so it can be hard to judge whether the pad is buffing near the edge of a panel, or on the edge... not good!

The  maroon  pad is designated a heavy cutter.
It features 100% wool, 1" twisted fibers that will quickly and effectively remove sanding marks & harsh surface defects.

The  yellow  pad is designated as a light cutter.
  (08-20-2015 Note: DISCONTINUED)  
It features a unique 1" fiber blend that can remove the rough stuff, yet leave a minimal amount of pad swirling behind.  It is the ideal pad to use on Scratch Resistant Coatings (SRC).

The feel of these pads is more sportscar-like than land yacht, which is a nice change.  After buffing with wool, use a Meguiar's 7" Soft Buff Rotary Foam Buffing Pad to finish things off.

A Meguiar's mainstay.

This pad has a tremendous following.  Run the rounds, and you'll see them in paint & body shops, detail shops, and weekend warrior garages. Why so popular?  Bang for the buck!   Let's go over the features.

The backing is the sturdy part of the buffing pad to which the twisted wool fibers are attached.  This particular pad features a curved backing, so should you happen to run the pad's edge into a pillar (or some other part of the vehicle that is not parallel to the polishing surface), the curved backing to will not contact that surface.  Drama avoided!

The curved backing makes this pad a great choice for curved surfaces, too.   Pads that use a completely flat backing can be dangerous to use on curved or complex shapes, especially if you are a buffing novice.

Bottom line: For those of you that move the polisher quickly or don't have a lot of time to spend on a car or simply don't have a lot of polishing experience, the curved edge can be a big plus.

The attachment material is Velcro®, so it is convenient to use.   If you don't own a backing plate that uses Velcro, but instead have a rubber backing plate and metal nut, this pad has a hole cut into the center for mounting purposes.  Another option: Meguiar's offers backing plates with centering plugs built right into them.   Simply line up the pad with the centering plug, and you've got perfect pad alignment.  Either way... you're set!

Let's see... feature packed, great price, and easy to use. Yup- it's a bargain!

Double trouble for heavy paint defects.

If you polish a lot of paint, the time will come when you'll need maximum cutting power.  Meet the heavy hitter.  The big gun.  The leveler.

This is a powerful and well built pad. Its 100% wool fibers are 4-ply & twisted (four individual "ropes", twisted together, and placed into a backing plate).  At 1-1/2 inches long, their leveling power is incredible. When all these fibers get a move on, feel sorry for anything that gets in the way! Think Weedwhacker® to get a better idea of what I mean.  Overall pad diameter is 8 inches.

Bottom line: with so much wool traveling in tandem, leveling power is at its peak.  Lots of wool means lots of weight, so this pad is heavy compared to one-sided wool pads of the same diameter, but the moving mass can be a huge asset when compounding with a rotary.

Since this pad is double sided, the backing plate is sandwiched in the middle of the pad.   An exclusive W5000 feature is its unique backing plate construction, which features a rigid center for maximized results on flat surfaces, and a soft, pliable edge that's perfect for safe and gentle buffing in contours and curves. At the center of the backing plate is the metal threaded mounting point, which ensures precise centering and consequent balance of the pad as it rotates.

With two sides available for compounding duties, this pad can either be used twice as long as a one-sided pad (simply flip the pad to the fresh side), or it can be used with two different liquids. Convenient!

Note: This pad requires a spacer or an extension to ensure that the machine's mounting shaft will not protrude through the buffing pad.  Check out the 3M #05710 Superbuff Rotary Adapter.
