    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.

    Don, we sell them at Orvis Bellevue but I believe they are also at PSFC, Avid, and Gig Harbor

    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!
