Default NBNG, BBM or Rib-n-Raps?? What's the difference?

I am trying to decide between the three. Can anyone post pics of their templates so I can see the difference? Can you also post the pro's and con's of your template set? I have read through loads of posts on opinions, but mostly people just say I have this set & love it. What do you LOVE about your templates? What do you not like so much about your templates? I'd like to hear both good & bad about your templates. I have only really seen a pic of the Rib-n-Raps one (that they only showed one of) on a video on the Gatorbite website. Would like to see a pic of the complete SETS of them to see what the difference is. Or are the templates for the BBM & NBNG similar/the same? The Rib-N-Raps one was way different than the very small pic of the ones for the NBNG that I saw. Do the BBM & NBNG ones bend at all when you are wrapping ribbon around them, since they are plastic? The Rib-N-Raps one didn't seem to bend in the video. They are quite different looking though than the NBNG one. Thank you to anyone who replies!!!

I have the NBNG set. It is a hard plastic, kinda like plexiglass. It's a hard plastic so it does not bend. It's about an eigth inch thick. So far I like it. I'm new to bowmaking. I have an 8 month old daughter. What I really liked about NBNG was her instructions. They are very clear and easy to understand. If you are a seasoned bow maker you may not need instructions but I did.

Sorry I am unfamiliar with BBM or RibnRaps.

So do you tie yours or sew? Thanks for the info. I am new to bowmaking. I have mostly stuck to making flower clips (I can handle just gluing flower layers together ). I have made some lined clippies, and a few bows, but they haven't turned out that great. That's why I am thinking about getting one of the template sets.

I have the NBNG templates, too. There's a vertical opening up the middle that you can use to sew up the middle (which she shows you how to do) or tie off your bow with another method. I sew. I LOVE the whole system. Very easy, great instructions, even bows every time. I seriously can't think of any cons. A lot of ladies use this system and love it. I haven't tried the others you mentioned, so can't comment on those. HTH
