just curious if anyone has found "the" sandpaper or sanding discs, that seem to out-perform all others. at the shop we are converting all of our 5" ROS sanders to hook and loop, and wondering which varieties hold up the best. we usually just run 80 grit and 120 grit. thanks.

For both hook and loop discs as well as regular sheet paper I have found that Norton is the best performer for me regardless of the grit.

I took to buying from these guys after Dave Paine mentioned them. http://www.woodworkingshop.com/category.aspx?id=21&f1=5%22+X+8+HOLE&f2=HOOK+%26+LOOP I have to say these discs cut great and last quite a long time. I just recently bought a roll of drum paper and
found that also to be superior. My favorite.
Yep, that's what I use, from 60 grit up to 1200 grit and they are terrific.

I've also bought sheet "seconds" from them (the brand is Klingspore) and they are also excellent. They are "seconds" only in that they are irregular sizes, not defective.
