RUPES BigFoot Medium Pad
Designed in Italy, these pads were engineered by the worlds leader in polishing technology, RUPES. While these have been designed to ensure optimum performance and balance for BigFoot machines; we've found them to be just awesome on a variety of polishing machines including the DAS6 and DAS6 PRO.
The Medium Polishing Pad is a compounding pad designed to remove moderate defects and leave a nice finish. The 24 degree bevelled edges ensure 100% surface contact for optimum performance.
Depending on the polish you use, the medium pad can be used with a medium grade compound to remove moderate scratches and leave a good shine, or a lighter polishing compound to increase shine further. On most paint finished the medium pad will leave a surface which requires minimal follow-up.
The RUPES Polishing System: UHS Easy Gloss (Grey), Coarse (Blue), Medium (Green), Fine (Yellow), Ultra Fine (White)

I urge anyone reading this review to try United Car Care. I have spoken to Sam and Christian several times. What a great company for car detailing products. Excellent products and great friendly service. Quick shipping. Would highly recommend to everyone. AAA+++
See also my review for the fine (yellow) Rupes pad. Using these pads on any DA polisher (doesn’t have to be Rupes) lifts the ability of the tool to polish out scratches with smooth handling and without wasting compound. I find the green pad is best used with either Menzerna Heavy Cut 400 or the Rupes green compound - Menzerna has more cut for harder paints (e.g. VW) but is a little dusty, Rupes compound is smoother but better on softer paints (e.g. Japanese). Green pad gives smoother handling than the blue pad and retains the compound better.
