OK, so I got some useful info from the previous discussion as depicted in the link, so I have another question. Actually three; you see, I have come to store my pads rolled up in my case. I would roll them so that the felt was face-out and then when that was done, secure it by rolling a bandana around it (yet another use for those things ) I just wonder, is that a bad thing to do? I am using Apollo pads from Sterling magic. Another question is, I noticed that the felt sometimes peels off in certain places (especially after rolling). I wonder what pads are most resistant to this tendency; would the VDF or Trevor Duffy pads be resistant to peeling? Finally, what would be the best way to repair this sort of thing? It usually manifests as small bubble-like portions where the resin does not work properly. So far, I use spray adhesive and cyanoacrylate superglue (the latter does not work as smoothly as I'd like). What say you?
