The paper could be wearing out quickly, but also consider that not all sanders are created equal. The orbit diameter affects the speed of the cut.

Regarding disks, I like Mirka Abranet. I use an 80 grit to smooth out saw marks from the lumber mill on the end grain of mesquite. The marks are much deeper than a drum sander would leave behind. I use a PC 7335 for the aggressive sanding and switch to a Makita then a Bosch as I get to the finer grits.
