    More than anything I liked looking at the step by step for the stinger process, now I know what I was doing wrong. Easy fix.

    Thanks.

    I've been looking a lot at this SBS for the popper and after shopping around online I'm having a tough time justifying the Rainy Popper heads. Is there much of a disadvantage to using the Wapsi slotted heads? I'm a ways away from a store to buy these so don't have the chance to check some out in person.

    Use whatever you want. If it works, great. If not, Rainy's.

    I know for a fact that Gig harbor has them ( 10 ct for $4.99 )
    I'm not sure about Puget sound fly Co, I'd call and ask.

    I'm not saying but I wouldn't be too quick in calling Orvis "expensive."

    I definitely wasn't calling Orvis expensive (never been so I don't really know), I happened to still have the bag they came in and thought the extra info could be useful to Don.

    You going to have those Viva la Popper stickers for when I get out to the Orvis shop?

    Sawyer, it wasn't meant for you. I wish I had the stickers myself!
