I have used Abranet, it works as well as anything else for general sanding. There are certain wood species that do tend to clog standard abrasives, IMO that's' where it certainly has it's advantages.
In a previous life, I used a similar product and found that it excels at tasks where clogging occurs. Whether it was grease, grime paint or whatever, you can rinse or use compressed air to clean out the mesh and you're ready to go again.
Now I use it as more of a specialty abrasive than general purpose but I think it's a great product.

Abranet is about the only sandpaper I use these days.

It certainly costs more than regular sandpaper, but I think it's actually cheaper in the long run because it seems to last forever.

I use Abrenet and really like it.

My concern is that I can sometimes use it after the actual grit has worn down. Remember, using a 80 grit for a long time does not make it a 180 grit.

I wish I could judge more easily when the Abranet has reached the limit of use.
