    Anyone have any experience with the Windjammer Tournament wads? Specifically, the WJII 12100A, 1 oz.

    I picked up a couple of bags to try out. I noticed that they had eight petals, instead of four, and that the petals were very flexible.

    Comments, emotional outbursts?

    Thanks.

    Best,
    Dennis

    I like them for 1oz singles, or 1st shot of doubles loads. I find that they pattern a little more open than the Remington TGT-12.

    I use them with 1oz #8 over 17.1g Titewad for all my practice loads. I find them very uniform and that they do not leave much plastic residue in my barrel.

    I've used Windjammer's, both in 12 ga one oz and in 20 ga. They worked fine, and had the added advantage of being the least expensive wad available from Dawson Enterprises where I got mine. I just had to pay a little extra attention that one of the wad's eight fingers did not make it up the shot drop tube on my MEC 9000H.

    OUTSTANDING WAD, I use them when I can't get Downrange wads.
    Just got in a case the other day.

    A PITA to load in a P-W press, the petals curl all over the place because the wads are bagged hot. The curled petals often get stuck in the shot drop tube. You can take the time to run them through a clothes dryer to relax the petals but there are other wads (just as good) that don't need to be fixed before they can be used.

    I find them to be tigher pattern with slower burning powers in a mod choke.

    I've used several cases with no problems. The petals have always been moulded to full lenght unlike some of the popular wads mentioned. My first choice when I can find them. The lightest weight wad I've used so recoil should be lower.

    I have been using the Windjammer 1 oz wad for years and love it. Very good to load and little or no plastic in the barrel. I order mine from Larrys Sporting Goods in Nampa Idaho. I ordered a case on Tuesday morning and there where here wednesday afternoon by UPS.
