How do the new Zipp Platinum and Reynolds Blue pads compare on Zipp Firecrest 404 clincher wheels? I am currently using Swiss Stop yellow pads and I have found that they get a surface glazing after only a short time of use. How do these newer pads compare? Is one better than the other?

Thanks,
Dave

The platinums work better on the zip rim surface... It's a different brake track than Reynolds / ENVE...
