: , it's the MetalMasters that squeak. Compound is for vibration that leads to squeal in the clamp, but the metalmasters' squeak is just the pad + rotor. It's the metallic compound. Deluxes are good.

I tried 6 different tried and true fixes to shut up the rears, and none of them lasted. The fronts are ok, but then I found the asbestos compound did not stop as wee, and required more leg pressure , then the better semi metallics around. I like Rotex the best of all I've tried for aggressive street use, and while Deluxe are certainly the cleanest, they do not stop the best. Metal masters are ok, but they are not particulary rotor friendly when compared with better semi metallics around, and, they are notorious for being a little 'hairy' for the first few stops of a cold morning.
