I was trying to find a more economical option for drum sanding rolls. Tired of paying more than $10 per wrap. I found empire and was a little unsure of quality at a price of less than $1 per wrap. But at $30 for a 50 YARD roll I thought I would roll the dice. Bought 2 rolls just to save on shipping costs and crossed my fingers. When I received them - the next day! - I unboxed them and found a very high quality product. They even have cloth backing. Some others don’t. I haven’t tried them yet but based on what I’ve seen I think they should be the best value I could find.
