Anyone heard about T-Type Low Stretch belts

Tru Grit sells SB T-Type Low Stretch Talc belts.
I called them and they told me that it supposed to be used with buffing compound. That all they know about this belt.

Can anyone tell me more about this belt and how it compares with cork belt loaded with compound.

Never heard of them. But, if they are DESIGNED to be used with buffing compound that should mean they would be more suitable for buffing than a cork belt would be. What you need to know is, are they made of some kind of cloth or felt? If so, they should be better at buffing than cork belts.

Sometimes, you just have to bite the bullet and make an investment. Try everything! How else will you ever know what works for you? I have spent thousands on belts over the years and some of the belts other people love work like crap for me, other belts work much better but only if I use the in ways that other people might not. Some belts that I hated when I first tried them suddenly make sense to me years later. Education always costs money but it pays off in the long run ...

Lady at Tru Grit said they are like Scotch bright with no abrasive.
I agree about trying everything. I just want to get some input before I buy. Kind of piggybacking on peoples knowledge.
