    Are 8-petal wads better for handicap or singles. What is the advantage?

    I don't think there is any advantage of one over the other. People are always looking for an edge. That invites advertising gimmicks into the market place. Eight petals are advertised to open faster, less pattern interference. I doubt it makes any difference.

    8 petals were harder to get into the loader than 4 petals so I load 4 petals.

    Conversely, I like the dr 8 petals because they load easier...go figure ..

    I suspect the 8's supposedly release shot better...

    Only Neil knows for sure...

    Like everything else, the only affect is to your mind. That advantage only lasts till the first miss.
