Popper Heads

Recommended Posts

 

For your purposes, RogueFlies, flip flop poppers does sound like a good option.

You just need a punch in the appropriate size or sizes.

 

As I said on the flip flop popper thread, I don't use punches and don't insist on round-bodies poppers. I cut them out with a razor blade.

 

 

Razor blades and other sharp objects are something I now try to stay away from as much as possible now that I am getting old, fumbly and on blood thinners.

I do have a set of punches, but a lot of the time I use spent brass with the inside of the mouth sharpened with a file. I to am getting old, fumbly and on blood thinners. I just try to be careful and keep the band-aids nearby. The only thing I get really nervous with is when I have to snap a double edge safety razor blade in half so I can trim some deer hair.

Two bulldog clips will hold the razor and give you enough bending angle to break the blade.
