I just finished sanding all the components for a 2m x 1m outdoor dining table made from rosewood. Went through the papers 80/120/150/180/240. Used a single piece of Granat in each grit (except 150 where I have Rubin) they weren’t new when I started, they are still in good condition. No clogging, last pass was as good as the first, great dust extraction. Used an ETS EC 150/3 and a CT Midi.

So I can recommend Granat. Note the Rubin clogged more than the Granat and needed a clean after each pass - that’s the different  hole pattern I reckon.

I love Granat

Cubitron

I've always wanted to try Cubitron II sand paper because I really like the Cubitron II discs that I use on the RA grinders. Currently I'm strictly Granat with a little Rubin 2 thrown in for good measure.

Here are some part numbers which may make it easier to track individual sanding discs down, this list was circa 2019 so it's still current.
