WOOD magazine review

Above-average aggressiveness, but above average cost

Review Summary

The Craftsman Professional discs are some of the most durable and aggressive sanding discs we've tested, finishing second in our material-removal tests. But finish quality is the trade off, with minor scratches visible to the naked eye after sanding to 220-grit, and the relatively high cost per disc hurts them on the value score.
(These discs are sold only in 3-packs, so they can't compete price-wise with other brands sold in quantities of 25 or 50 discs or more.) Finally, the dark-print-on-dark-blue-background printing makes reading the back of the disc label difficult, especially after the disc has been used.
