Has anyone used the Rupes 180mm Ultra Fine Soft White pad?

    Apparently its their softest, least cut pad.
    I want it for applying Collinite 476S double coat.
    It works very well doing this, but I was surprised it felt slighly agressive to the touch when say lightly brushed against the inside of your wrist, weirdly loaded with wax if pressed a bit more the slight abraisive feel dissapears ... as opposed to the ultra soft 3M Ultrafina Blue pad (this feels like a Cashmere jumper).

    Mine has all the right product codes on the back, but wondered if it was abraisive, re using it once every 2 months to top up the Collinite.

    I recollect touching their 100mm version ( Rupes say they both use the same foam) and if memory serves me well that smaller one felt very soft.
    Just concerned they had a bad batch.

    I am interested to know what makes one foam pad more agressive than another?, other than it being firmer.
