Previously I have been applying semi-permanent coatings using the orange CarPro block with matching orange square suede and getting fantastic results with very little product absorption. I had horrible results with trying to use the square finding that it absorbed more material and didn't allow as much spread. It also left some very strong high spots.

Might have been a fluke since the other reviews state otherwise, but frankly I won't be giving it a second chance since the previous method worked so well.

Nice little applicator. A little hard to hold on to but once you get used to it it works well. It doesn't squeak like the CarPro's one so that's nice.

Good product. Easy to use. Fits in my fingers nicely; easy to hang on to. As Anthony mentioned, a thinner model may be nice to get under mirrors and other tight spots. Maybe sell as a set - one thin, one traditional applicator?

A nice applicator. I think they need to offer a thinner model to get in tight places. For example, under the side mirrors is difficult to fit this pad.

I really thought these were the answer for applying coatings. I bought 9 of them to stock up. I had been using the "inside" foam cut up from MF applicator pads. The first time I tried these squares I noticed I used way more product than previously and wasn't thrilled. I used them when doing a Bentley CGT. I had just done a Paint Correction and the finish was flawless. After the curing phase I pulled the Bentley out of the garage and noticed hairline scratches pretty much all over the vehicle (they were in straight lines like they way I had applied the coating). I was not happy and figured somehow during the removal of oils and chemicals before the coating application I somehow introduced marring. I lightly re-polished and reapplied with foam and the car was perfect. It wasn't until coating my personal car did I noticed the squares DID somehow scratch the finish. I coated w/squares a recently painted bumper (black) and after saw horrible light scratches all over. It is a very soft clear coat and difficult to remove the scratches to begin with but I will not use what squares I have left, and will from no on use the soft foam to apply the 22ple which I absolutely love working with. I don't like writing bad reviews but this has to be said. I think its the edges of the squares that hit the paint when applying and dragging across the finish. The fiber material used is fine I believe, just where that fiber is glued to the foam. That around all the edges touches the paint when the fibers are compressed. I hope this helps either a correction in material used and re-engineering or others with use of this product. Please check a small area before doing a whole car.

Best applicator pad I've used for coatings or trim restoration. It is easy to hold and doesn't seem to use as much product like other applicators. Given the costs of the coatings we use I like to feel as though I'm not wasting product "in the applicator" Well worth the extra two bucks.
