Avid Shorty Ultimates - which replacement pads are best

It's time to replace the pads on my Avid Shorty Ultimates. They are the kind with the notch that the 1mm bolt goes all the way through - not the kind where a 2mm screw pushes against the pad.


I prefer KoolStop pads but they apparently don't make this style of replacement. Any  thoughts on a substitute?

I use these KoolStop Dura2 pads on my Avid Shorty Ultimates ( and just file out the notch a little with a round file so the 1mm bolt fits.
I just installed Kool Stop salmon pads on mine, no problems. I had to run a pick down thru the hole to get them to work but it wasn't that hard.
