Product Description

The Rupes Green Medium Foam Pads are designed for removing moderate to light swirl marks, water spots, and oxidation with ease! All of Rupes pads are made with super durable open-cell foam that is designed to withstand the excessive wear of the Big Foot Polishers, allowing you to achieve great polishing results every time! This green polishing pad features densely packed foam that allows you to remove moderate swirl marks and other imperfections. Simply pair it with your favorite corrective polish (i.e. Rupes Quarz Gloss Medium Gel Compound) and you will be amazed at how quickly and easily you can remove light to moderate imperfections in your paint! This pad will finish down extremely well, however we do still recommend that you follow it up with a lighter cutting pad and polish combo to maximize gloss and depth. If you are looking for a durable foam pad to help you remove moderate imperfections, pick up the Rupes Green Medium Foam Pad today!

This is my go to pad, make sure when using this pad to allow the pad to do the work. If you apply too much pressure the pad begins to fall apart inside and out. Works great with any low grit and high longevity polish/compound. Will be buying more of these, if anything all kinds and colors Rupes offers. Dont second guess Rupes bite the bullet and pay the extra money the pads and paint your correcting are worth it!

The pad produced especially nice results. I used it with Optimum Hyper Polish. The only drawback, the pad was rather short-lived, (beginning to come apart after polishing 3 cars).

I'm continually impressed by the cut/finish ratio of all the Rupes foam pads.

I have a fondness of the medium cutting pads. They have a lot of weight to carry. They have to be aggressive enough to do correction works, and simultaneously do leave a glossy finish. The green Rupes pad is definitely a winner in that catagory.

While the pad is capable of leveling defects, and leaving a glossy mar and haze free finish, there are some characteristics that might be challenging for some users.

1. The more rigid the foam, the more it is likely to wear faster than traditional pads. It usually doesn't take too long to see the foam start to wear a bit depending on how aggressive you use it.

2. The more eigid, porous, and open nature of the green, blue, and grey Rupes pads can present a challenge to users who have disengaged the Anti-Spin feature of the tool. This changes the behavior of the backing plate, and can make a bit of a mess with compound sling. When used as intended, splatter is minimal. I will definitely be purchasing more of these right here at Detailed Image.
