The clips on RABOM are fine. I was so gald when mine came in, I was cringing everytime I was having to put a Hobby Lobby french clip on a bow. The quality lacks on the french clips from HL. Now on the ribbon, I will only use Offray and Schiff. Some colors such as red and black and lt. pink I will like using Offray because I think the colors are prettier than Schiffs red, black and Lt. Pink. I perfer to use Schiff White though, the offray white is not as white as Schiff to me. You will play w/ it and find what you like. I would recommed color charts though.
