View Full Version : Flex 3401 questions

03-30-2016, 05:40 PM
Hi everyone,

I am thinking about treating myself to a Flex 3401 as my old DIY kit just isn't good enough now I am working with it full time.

Our choice of pads and compounds here in the UK are no-where near as wide as the selection you appear to have in the US.

I am struggling to get my hands on Lake County pads. There are limited ranges of the Hydro Tech pads and no-one in the UK stocks any of the Hybrid pads.

I can get my hands on some LC CSS 6.5" pads; I guess I am asking if there are any other brands/types I should consider?

In terms of liquids - I have a trade deal with 3M so I will be using the Finesse-it II line-up of compounds, polishes, cleaner waxes and their marine paste wax.

Marine 31 isn't available in the uk or I would have given that a go.

Interested in hearing your advice,

Most quality pads work great on the FLEX 3401.

I'm working on an article right now that will show you a huge selection of pads that work great with this tool plus some other cool things.

Should be up tomorrow.
