Welcome back Nelly!

 

Last time I did a comparison Courteney Sport came out cheapest, but that was a few years ago.

Courtnay are cheapest
You might want to consider the m1155 as they last longer

If you're ever over Nantwich way give me a shout.  I'm sure I can make you a socially distanced brew.  With my personality social distancing is guaranteed anyway.

Courtnay sell then for £50 so pretty cheap

This may have been done to the death already, buit has anyone found a difference between 1144's and 1155's?

I need to replace my 1155's now.  Wasnt massively impressed with them, so figured I just didnt get them up to temp and the 1144's would be more suitable. 

 

But then the VX has never been a big braker.

  About 11.

 

Sorry.

:D

YOU'VE BEEN HELPFUL IN THAT OTHER THREAD AND NOW YOU THINK YOU'RE CLEVER!!!

However... just seeing the price difference and I'm not sure I need that extra 11.  I'll go for the ~cheese~ 1144 pads.

The 1155 last longer than the m1144 so worth having for that reason alone

I found the 1144's generate a lot more dust than the 1155's
