Definitely need the heavy duty compound and please take this tip to heart.....

CLEAN THE PAD OFTEN WITH A TOOL OR IF YOU DONT HAVE ONE A SIMPLE METAL FORK FROM THE KITCHEN WILL DO

(Take the buffer at a slow to medium speed and hold the tines of the fork into the spinning pad to loosen and remove the built up compound/oxidation dust.)

This will help more than you know, most love the results after trying wool for the first time with the right compound....then results go down. First thing they do is think adding more compound must be the answer, this (no pun intended) compounds the problem. Keep that sucker clean and make sure it is a new pad. Follow up the buffing with a nice polishing or scratch reducing polish like Finesse 2 and then work your way up until you need to just seal it up with a heavy carnuba wax and apply 3-4 times a season to let it soak in.
