I just use 80 grit. If I were running a large job through I would probably bother with going to 120 grit (but not beyond that, as I have had burning problems with 150), but for the small jobs that I am running through (normally just an end grain cutting board or two) I don’t feel that it is worth the hassle of switching grits. I just go straight to a ROS with 80 grit, then move through the grits from there.
