Disposable, parchment triangles, vinyl?

I want to know what you all use...

I use vinyl but am looking for the easiest.

I usually use the featherweight bags for buttercream and the disposable for royal icing.

I use the disposable ones and ziplocs for multiple color change outs learned here on CC.

I have three featherweight bags, but normally use disposable - I have been known to re-use the disposable bags also icon_redface.gif

I use the disposable ones and occasionally the small parchment ones for royal icing.

I use featherweight for big jobs and parchment for small detail work.

Parchment for small amounts depends what is on hand--either disposable or ziplocks for larger jobs. I like the parchment since I can peel the paper away to get the tip out.

I have one big featherweight that I keep loaded with white icing and for all others I use the Ateco disposables. I have NEVER had one of them break and they are fairly reasonable to buy.

I use parchment when I only need to do a tiny bit on a fill in or such.

I use the feather weight bags with the icing plugs. The disposables always seem to get slippery on me. I do use them for small bits of icing or royal though.

I use Featherweights for everything except chocolate work and royal icing...for those I use plastic disosables. Once in a while when I'm feeling lazy icon_rolleyes.gif , I'll use the disposables for my BC but I try to keep that to a minimum.

I use parchment triangles for everything--love that they're cheap and that you can throw them away.

Ziploc freezer bags for multiple colors and tip changes. Parchment for color and single tip usage. I only use my Featherweights for white with multiple refills and multiple tips. I hate to wash anything with BC so that's just one less thing to clean.
I'm out of my mind... please leave a message.

Featherweights are my favorite, but I use the disposables a lot too. I do wash them out and try to get a few uses before throwing them away.

I have both but never use my featherweights. Disposable all the way I have 2 sizes 14' & 22" I hate to clean the featherweights when I can just through away the disposables less of a mess.
