Galfer Pads

My friend is looking at getting some Galfer Wave rotors for his Trophy and was given a choice between HH pads or Green pads. My understanding is the green pads wear faster, but don't wear out the rotors as quickly.

What are your thoughts? He's looking for opinions on what to get.

I've run the Galfer HH's and they where by far the meanest on my rotors I've ever encountered.

If the pads are free, I'd take the greens.
If he's gotta pay for the pads, I'd buy Vesrah.

I think they are making him pay, but are going to give him a discount. So you would go with the Vesrah equivalents to the Green Galfer pads?

Yeah, the HH compunds always seems to make more noise and really , the braking isnt that much better - My brother and several other racers guys have been running Vesrah RJL pads this year and they all like them . Ive got some Galfer pads on my Tuono and thus far havent noticed any diffrence in the pads form stock - granted,it turns in on a dime now !
