I bought a few packs of different grits years ago, I think they came in packs of 10 or 25 and may have been from the old All-Wall catalogue, but most are still in the box. I found they bunged up and i had to knock them out quite often, and destroyed a velcro backing pad. They also scratched the surface too much for my liking. Hard as nails, will shred on contact with any screws or electrical boxes but very good for grinding through BG ready mix or artex.

I don't remember how much I paid for them but they were probably more expensive than regular pads and not worth the hassle.
