When you are doing only fine tuning a single grade is fine. When setting up 
a plate from scratch and maybe taking a reed a semitone or tone away from 
it's natural pitch I uses a coarser grit paper.  I use the finer paper to 
get a better finish finally.

BTW, I always wash the reed plates before doing final checking in order to 
get all grit and brass dust off the reeds... can make a difference to the 
tuning. Then into the washer again to stop customer from catching all of 
the nasties I have accumulated over the years :))
