If you are talking about the pictures on their web site, it appears to be the fact that the pictures do not represent the actual belt being listed. On the 5 pack picture the inside of the belt reads 120 grit and they do not look like 48” long belts. The specs given below read the same on both listings. So some one screwed up on the pictures.

What I have seen for a few is the different colors are different material either for the grit or the backing. For example the aluminum oxide in cloth back is probably different than the regular aluminum oxide, and the zinc are different than those. I almost bought the wrong type when getting some to use for flattening plane soles when I noticed wrong color in wrong spot.

Are the Sanding belts better than the psa discs? I bought some of the psa and they were terrible.

I don t really use the 6×48 of the 12” disc as much as I use the edge Sander, so the discs and the belts are satisfactory to destroy compared to the sanding belts for the edge sander($15). Saying this if I used it a lot I would use Klingspor,etc.?

Going to order the 6×48 5 pk . I would lose with the $6.99 shipping. I guess I’ll have to go in the store and buy all the singles they have….
