Just my opinion, but I prefer to use the single prong ones. They have worked well for all the clips I've made so I haven't tried the double prongs yet. There might be some designs that will be easier with a double prong however, so let's see what others have to say too!

Best of luck!

I only use single prong. I haven't ever tried double before though. I did do a bow swap, and I lady sent a bow on a double prong to us, I didn't see a real big difference.

As far as preferance I like the single prong but that is also because of the feedback from customers saying that they prefer them as well. But I did notice for the bigger bows that the double prong seems to make the whole thing sturdier...but thats just me. HTH!

I think single prongs are better for small clippies, double for bigger clippies. I use double prong on my flower clips, and they stayed in my daughter's hair all day in the wind with no non-slip applied. I think they stay better in my hair, too. Double prong also works better for thicker ribbon, single for thin ribbon.

I have an easier time lining the single prong, but lots say the double prong is easier for them. I have noticed that the double prongs stay in my girls' hair better though.

I really don't like double prong clips. I've used them many times (my Sally's is constantly running out of single prong). They're much harder to line with ribbon, imo.
