    Thought I'd try some with straps above the knee to see if they're better on my twig like legs.

    Ultimately it depends on what you're doing with them. In general:-

    Hard rubber or aluminium backer for flat surfaces or convex surfaces/edges.

    The only reason to have a flexible or semi flexible backer is if you need the pads to form to a concave shape or curve.

    Sponge (soft) type backers are more appropriate for paper discs, it gives them a little suspension and reduces the chance of tearing.

    had a call from Tools Colchester this week saying my points are about to run out, didn't know I had any as I don't use them. £64.50 apparently.
    So I got some freebies

    Topps are doing Rubi flexi buckets and any trowel for £12 at the moment.
    And the bucket has a pouring spout! More handy than you might think especially on slc.

    good deal on bucket and trowel

    asked how much a bag of white S1 would cost me and nearly fell over when they said ... And they wonder why I don't use them.
