Rupes 5" Wool Buffing Pads
The Rupes 9.BW150H 5" Blue Coarse Wool Polishing Pad features a diverse string length & density combination designed to deliver fast cutting action, without the heavy scouring typically associated with heavy-cut wool pads.<br/><br/>Available in 1-inch, 2-inch, 3-inch, 5-inch, and 6-inch diameters. BIGFOOT.<br/><br/>Actual dimensions:<br/>(Velcro: 5-1/8" | 130mm) • (Pad Face: 5-3/4" | 146mm) • (String Length: 3/8" | 9.5mm)<br/><br/>The Rupes 9.BW150M 5" Yellow Medium Wool Polishing Pad features highly refined, non-twisted wool strings. The term "non-twisted" refers to the fact that the wool strings are NOT braided together to form a thicker, rope-like string.<br/><br/>This pad delivers a smooth feel during polishing. The plushness and length of its wool strings enable the 9.BW150M to work efficiently on super-contoured areas. Available in 1-inch, 2-inch, 3-inch, 5-inch, and 6-inch diameters. BIGFOOT.<br/><br/>Actual dimensions:<br/>(Velcro: 5-1/8" | 130mm) • (Pad Face: 5-3/4" | 146mm) • (String Length: 1/2" | 12.7mm)<br/><br/>The Rupes 9.BW150H 5" Blue Coarse Wool Polishing Pad looks unique... because it is! This pad features a low-profile rigid foam, which assists in transferring the machine motion efficiently through the foam, to the strings. A tapered side enables the pad to easily conform to complex panels shapes (such as hood bulges and fender flares).<br/><br/>Although originally designed for use with large stroke random orbital polishers, it has become immediately popular for use with rotary buffers as well. BIGFOOT.<br/><br/>Actual dimensions:<br/>(Velcro: 5-1/8" | 130mm) • (Pad Face: 5-3/4" | 146mm) • (String Length: 3/8" | 9.5mm)<br/><br/>The Rupes 9.BW150H 5" Blue Coarse Wool Polishing Pad is NOT the typical fluffy & puffy pad wool. Two string lengths are utilized: the longer set measures 3/8" length (9.5mm). A second set of shorter wool strings populate the void areas, and support the longer strings.<br/><br/>This is a very comfortable pad to use, although it can feel a bit more squirrely that its yellow counterpart, the Rupes 9.BW150M Medium Wool Polishing Pad. BIGFOOT.<br/><br/>Actual dimensions:<br/>(Velcro: 5-1/8" | 130mm) • (Pad Face: 5-3/4" | 146mm) • (String Length: 3/8" | 9.5mm)<br/><br/>The Rupes 9.BW150M 5" Yellow Medium Wool Polishing Pad is a very low profile pad. Compared to a traditional wool pad design, it achieves a great result while efficiently transferring machine motion through the foam, directly to its strings. This is particularly important when pairing this pad with random orbital, forced rotation orbital, or gear driven orbit-action machines.<br/><br/>Using a rotary? Then you will LOVE the performance of the Rupes 5" Medium Wool Polishing Pad, as it delivers a sportscar-like feel during use. Compared to the 9.BW150H 5" Rupes Blue Coarse Wool Polishing Pad, the strings used to make the 9.BW150M are longer, and more abundant. BIGFOOT.<br/><br/>Actual dimensions:<br/>(Velcro: 5-1/8" | 130mm) • (Pad Face: 5-3/4" | 146mm) • (String Length: 1/2" | 12.7mm)<br/><br/>The Rupes 9.BW150M 5" Yellow Medium Wool Polishing Pad utilizes a flared (or tapered) sidewall, enabling it to contour to complex panel shapes with ease. Low profile foam equals low-loss of machine action, making these pads perfect for use with the majority of orbit-action machines (random orbital, forced rotation orbital, or gear-driven orbital machines).<br/><br/>Of course, these perform wonderfully when paired with a rotary buffer! BIGFOOT.<br/><br/>Actual dimensions:<br/>(Velcro: 5-1/8" | 130mm) • (Pad Face: 5-3/4" | 146mm) • (String Length: 1/2" | 12.7mm)<br/><br/>A hearty alternative to the Rupes 9.BW150H 5" Blue Coarse Wool Polishing Pad is the Rupes 9.BF150FH 5" Coarse Microfiber Pad. Compared to wool, this microfiber pad has the ability to LEVEL away deep sanding marks & surface texture to a higher degree (in large part due to the dense injection molded foam, super short string length, and the intricatate shape & surface area that each string features).<br/><br/>However, microfiber pads generally require more cleaning during use, as microfiber very efficiently at grabs and holds onto liquids, abrasives, and paint debris. BIGFOOT.<br/><br/>An interesting alternative to the Rupes 9.BW150M 5" Yellow Medium Wool Polishing Pad is the Rupes 9.BF150FM 5" Fine Microfiber Pad. Compared to wool, this microfiber pad has the ability to LEVEL away deep sanding marks & surface texture to a higher degree (in large part due to the dense injection molded foam, super short string length, and the intricatate shape & surface area that each string features).<br/><br/>However, microfiber pads generally require more cleaning during use, as microfiber very efficiently at grabs and holds onto liquids, abrasives, and paint debris. This Rupes 9.BF150FM FINE Microfiber Pad is more plush than the Rupes 9.BF150FH COARSE Microfiber Pad. BIGFOOT.<br/><br/>

Rupes BigFoot 5" Wool Buffing Pads were designed specifically for use with orbit-action machines, but they deliver excellent performance when paired with rotary-action machines as well. Two versions are available:

Rupes 5"  Blue  Coarse Wool Polishing Pads (9.BW150H) feature dual-length strings that deliver a rapid cut. A rigid blue foam interlayer assists in delivering maximum machine motion to the wool.

Rupes 5"  Yellow  Medium Wool Polishing Pads (9.BW150M) deliver a super-smooth polishing feel. They cut remarkably well, but finish out surprisingly good.  The yellow foam interlayer features just enough rigidness, enabling them to conform to complex panel shapes.

If haziness or scouring remains after polishing with wool (regardless the type of buffing liquid), final-polish utilizing a Rupes Foam Buffing Pad.
