I like 5.5" too, but if the griots has enough power for the 6" pads, I'd invest in 4" in pads and 3.5" backing plate if you want options.
Thanks for the feedback, sounds like 6 inch is a good way to start. I'll have to check into Griots and see if I can change the backing plate to a 4 or 3.5". I'm not sure they sell that...I know they sell a 3" orbital though
