Default New sanding media

Yesterday I got a free sample of 3m's new Pro Grade Precision sanding media. This is a very thin and flexible sanding film. As you can see in the photo you can actually read through it. Has anybody else tried this yet?

A link in The Woodworkers Journal newsletter is how I ordered my free sample.

@Mike

Yes, I have been using it on picture frames with a curved sanding block. It is very good and seems not to load up very much. It really conforms well to shapes and I think it leaves a finer surface than paper backed in the same grits. I like it. Here is a picture of the blocks. It is pricey, but it really lasts. I suspect the grit sinks slightly into the flexible backing so it doesn't wear off easily. Good stuff.

I sent for the same offer you did, but haven't received it yet.

It seems I never finish what I
