Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Idaho7777 Not so bad.
I have only used the 120 grit belt so far but it seem to be a good product. I am using it in a cheap central machine sander to shape and install a zebra wood handle on a damascus knife. It does great on the wood and made quick work of smoothing out the brass pins. it even does pretty good cleaning up some edges on the damascus. overall i am pretty satisfied with it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by HairyBeard Worst belts I have ever used.
I bought these belts for a 1 x 30 sander I have had and used for a long while now. I only bought them because the Home Depot was closer than my usual supplier at the time and I did not want to order them online. First set I purchased, two out of the three belts flew off because of improper size. I exchanged them for a second set. The second set, only one of the belts fit improperly, but I decided to just take the loss because I wanted to get my project done. However when using the belts that ( in some small form) fit "better" they would still come flying off the wheels when in use. And what little use the belts did get, the grit came off the belts much too quickly and were wore down with less than a couple minutes of use.

These Diablo sanding belts are.... NOT RECOMMENDED
They are listed as "premium zirconium blend", for wood, metal or plastics, and are non-directional (angled cut).
They, or at least the 50 grit belt, which is the only one I have used so far, start off to do the job acceptably, I guess, but it is no great shakes at material removal.
The big problem I saw is that they shed grit like a dog sheds hair..... I've used this sander for many years, and this is the only belt that has blasted me with loose grit to this extent. When I started using it, my hands were being grit-blasted by shed abrasive, and after a little use, the belt doesn't remotely resemble the one I put on the machine.
Either there was too much coarse loose grit on it to begin with, or it doesn't hold grit worth a darn. But the 50 grit belt now looks like a 100 or 150 grit belt, after only a few minutes use.
Might be OK for wood, but don't bother buying them for metal. And since you can ONLY buy an assortment, you will build up a supply of stuff you don't need.
