Specifically the maroon and grey. What is the comparablt sandpaper grit to these two pads. My pro shop guy told me 600-maroon, and 400-grey. Oe is it the other way around? I forget, ergo....

I contacted 3M and they said me this:

Brown #6444             280 - 320
Marron #7447 or Green #96       320 - 400
Dark Grey #6448             410 - 600
Light Grey #7448           600 - 800
White #7445              1000 - 1200

Hope this help.
