Bout had it with them. Unreturned calls, unanswered emails. I know this is costing me targets! Talk about crap quality control! Sometimes the little hair-like stringy thing is so long it'll be in two shells!

Unacceptable.

I use the 2118 wads and yes I get the little hairs too. By the time I box them up they are gone. BTW the gold shell and the one by your thumb are about worn out :rolleyes:
There's still a few more rounds left in em. Besides, if I throw it away I'd have to tap into the 5k once fired stash. Times are tough!

Just remember everything is, but yourself to blame.

If the shot is not falling out, they are doing what they are supposed to do.

Nope, this is 100% on the wad (the plastic one, not me). You can see it under the lights, the little stringy thing is acting like a tail on a kite and causing it to go off course. Has my shot string all messed up.

Thoughts:

They save the hair wads for people that load on Mecs and/or people that use a WAA12 clone in an STS hull.

Besides, if it was really bothersome there is nothing that prevents you from taking a pair of cuticle scissors and giving them a trim. Heck some folks say they wash their hulls, looks like you could give yours a haircut 🤪

Final thought: half quart of good bourbon prior to a loading session will make those hairs less aggravating 🤔

Naw, the tail adds stability to the kite! So if anything, your loads are more stable than other shooters, so you should be shooting better than them!!

Oh c'mon now, with proper follow through I can spread that shot string out and still catch the target on a sloppy shot. The stringy tail on my wad prevents that. You must not shoot registered much or you'd know that 😉
