i have been searching around for a decent pair of brake pads for ages i need a good working brake with bite,good wear life and a squeak but i'm not too fussed about that.

i've used:

1.plazmatics crm

2.koxx blues

3.koxx blue and koxx red(what i am using at the moment).

i was thinking of buying some of the original zoo brake pads off of tarty and i was also considering the new echo pads because ive heard good reviews on both of them. :)(Y)

cheers people.

Imo all pads can be good depending on what they like lol rim,grind,tar........

Pads i have used :

koxx browns <<<<<< really good if you treat them right

echo pinks <<<<<< good but fast wear rate killed them in a matter of days

viz yellow < amazing killed them in 4 days

cnc coust <<<<<<<<<<<<<< best overall amazing in every way:)

plaz <<<<<<< meh can be good

zoo < worst pad in the world i would rather use wood

rock pads < good untill they wear down and start getting shit :(

joy pads < good if you get the right batch

phat pads < good if you get the right batch

I used all these pads on a echo 07 rims with sharp light grind :) :):):):)

cheers.

Well for starters. No wonder your Zoo pads were wank. Your using them on a grind. They are clearly made for smooth rims. DONKEY.

yer but any pad is good on a smooth rim with loads of tar, even kool stops :P

Oh really ? So the rest of the people who have used them on smooth rims have not found then amazing ? For example. What pads did Cls use all through Zoo video 23 ?:) Zoo pads ont smooth.

His brake was f**king amazing. Supprising how good your brake can be if you set it up correctly ;)

Danny.

p.s - When i used them on a smooth. Got to be the best pad ive used compared to the likes of, rock pads on a grind, plaz on grind, heatsink blues on grind, koxx greens on grind. For some reason the brake of my adamant is good. One koxx brown and one plaz. Bloody brilliant.

You used koxx browns on a light grind? :lol: Guess you got lots of grinding practise :P

Plazzies are immense on a light grind. Joy pads like a medium grind, same with the phat pads i guess as they're the same compound. For someone who says all pads can be good given the conditions they are used under you go out and say you used all those pads on the same kind of rim surface, seems a bit hypocritical/stupid to me.

the new zoo pads are actually a load of wank.. they backings wobble around to the extent where you can feel them rocking back and forth on the back wheel.

the old ones were amazing however, exept for the shitty lever feel.

Youve never used the old ones, PLANK, shitty lever feel?????????????, yeh they were damn good but £20 nowaydays is a rip

I was just saying a light sharp grind becuase i have used tham all on a sharp light grind but i have also used most of them pads on other grinds rims ect.... i was just saying thats what they where like when i used them.

What with all these brake pad queries just recently... Have a gander in the brake pad review section (Y) . I'm sure you'll be able to get some decent advice in there :) !

My advice to you, however, would be to get some Coustellier pad material in Heatsink CNC backings on a nice, sharp grind and you will be sorted forever!!

Cheers,

Joe.

I use rock greens with tar works lovely.

magura blacks and tar work fine.

wood works with tar, thats a waste of pad

use plazzies, phat pads/joypads

or coust pads or just put a light grind on and use rock greens (Y)

I've found that pads work differently for each person. As you can see some people love the zoo pads, some dont.

My mate had onza citrus on a medium and they were shit, but mine were amazing.

My other mates heatsink reds were awesome, mine were poo.

But my cousts cnc'ed are amazing :)
