I recently bought a package of Ad tech High Temp glue sticks and HATE THEM!! I never had high temp glue sticks before but if this is how they are I don't want to use them. The major problem is that they are SUPER stringy. The strings are so annoying and get in my way thus slowing me down. I constantly have to pick the glue off with a tweezer!
I didn't have this problem with the regular sticks that came with my Aleenes glue gun. I think I will use their brand when I run out of these.
