Thought I had read it somewhere-and I had:
Kool Stop Salmon pads are softer and work better in the wet but, even being softer, their durability is very good so they last a long time in typical use. Kool Stop does offer pads that are half Black and half Salmon and are a compromise. Any Kool Stop pad is a good choice.
