Looking for some 120 grit belts. The last order I received from Supergrit the splices were horrible. Working in the plunges the belt would almost jerk the knife out of your hand. Tracking was terrible. Pop's Knife Supply, maybe???
The last 120's I got were from Pops Knife Supply. I haven't had any problems with them.Looking for some 120 grit belts. The last order I received from Supergrit the splices were horrible.

I've often wished for the same....only in a J weight belt. I use a ton of 220 and 400 belts.....so I settled on using Klingspor LS309 in both grits..... soft, flexible belt, but only available in aluminum oxide. Even after all these years, I'm still trying to find a 600 grit belt that works/last worth a darn. Every time something new in 600 comes out, Scott at Tru-Grit sends me a couple of samples to try.......still looking.I wish they made a 220 version.
Thanks John! I'll stick with the A30s and A45s. I like them alot too. Heading over to Trugrit to place an order based on the recommendations in this thread. Really appreciate the help everybody!! Thanks!!You gotta be careful with the coarser grit trizacts. They're what I would call 'spongy'. Meaning its really easy to not get true flats and/it wash out crisp lines.
I love the a45 and a30 belts for final clean up and polishing and blending operations.
You should try the Hermes 220 ceramic from Tru-grit. I like them and they seem to last awhile. The only complaint I have is the belt gets gummy when wet, and gives a smudged look to the blade.I switched to the VSM belts on ED's advice and I have been happy with them in 50 and 120 grit...I wish they made a 220 version.
