Any there any 125mm pads for the Pro 5 other than the one supplied?
Specifically, a Supersoft.
Thanks.

I do prefer hard pads. But if any sander didn't have a hard pad option the pro5 would be the one. The hard pads  excel with use of more powerful sanders or larger sanders that can cover a lot of ground for flattening.

I dont see the hard pad saving much time over the regular pad as anything I really want that hard pad for I wouldn't be choosing the Pro5 in the first place.  So I get why they dont offer one for it. I would probably buy it though, I use use hard pads on all my sanders that offer one.

My Pro 5 don't hop around at all, but for the guys that have Pro 5s' that do hop a hard pad is just going to make the gouging worse.

The one who says it can't be done should avoid interrupting the person doing it.
