Not really :lol: Just got a bit sidetracked with other things I'm afraid :mrgreen:

First impression is they fit very well, as they grip the sander head, and align to the holes on the pad pretty much exactly. Initial cutting is excellent and extraction is also excellent, however..............

This is where things go a bit off. I would say you get around 10 minutes of decent 120 grit cutting before things start to wear down. The indicator (red under white grit) goes pink within a couple of minutes, and is completely red inside 30 minutes. After the initial few minutes you're having to press a fair bit harder on the head to get the disc to work. That said, with the white abrasive gone, and the red backing colour exposed, it still cuts at around 240 or 320 I'd say, so you can re-use 120 discs at a later stage I guess.

Verdict (though a bit abstract) would be

Fit 10/10
Extraction 9/10
Cutting 7/10
Life 3/10

The wear indicator is essentially a gimmick, and a more hard wearing, stronger bonded abrasive would have been a better use of R&D time I think. They do work OK I guess, but they wear down far, far quicker than Abranet I have to say. I'll use them, but I'll be straight back to Abranet when these are finished. :salute:

You're welcome :B

Its not like a paint or brush review, where personal preference may come into play. These are just not very good.

Like that tin of luminous purple emulsion, I'll find a use for them eventually. :mrgreen:

Just to follow up.

Tried another 120 today and it was absolute gash, so.....

Emailed DD to mention my unhappiness - they promptly replied to say they'd had similar complaints and will credit me.

Happy again now.

They said that there have been intermittent faults with the discs due to the heat from sanding. Not a problem with the hand held strips though.

So Fossa are bringing out a newer version next month which has been tested by deccies with good reports and will send me a sample to try.

Pleased with their help.

I daresay there will always be quality control/manufacturing issues with some of these products, but listening to the trade is the way forward. :thumbright:
