Just walk in, and grab a handful of the cheapest singles the store has. One of each grit. Try each out, and take notes on each. When you find a winner in the crowd, go back and get a pack of them, and the secnd place as well. Why the cheapest belts? Save your money, and get a dang good honing guide. Either one of the Veritas are good. i happen to have the MK1. No coarser than 100 grit. Any coarser is a waste of time, and belts. You’ll spend too much time getting rid of them scratches a coarse belt leaves. 100 grit, and go out and hog down some rough sawn lumber with it first, just to “break them in”.
