Snaps -- Plastic or Metal
I am wrapping up a poncho project and it calls for snaps.Metal ones from W*t are coming in at 2.5g each. I will need 6 or 7. Should I go with plastic? Can they handle the cycles? Thanks.
The plastic ones have a surprisingly high holding strength. They are a lot lighter too and also do not get stuck together like the metal ones after sitting in the garage for a year...
Many thanks. Off to find plastic.
KAM Snaps has the snaps and the pliers for a good price

Great site -- thank you all.(edit)Tool arrived today along with 200 snaps. Fast shipping. Will run some tests.
