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?

I've heard very good things about the Zipp Platinum pads

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