Wow, those are nice.
I know that the Staples are considered mid-fi, but I feel that the elasticity pretty high - perhaps 90% of what I'd could achieve with my current desk drawer full of office supplies. Would I get the additional 10% with the Schermerhorns?
I think you'll be able to get that last 10% with the Schermerhorns but only you can decide if the extra money is worth it. But the build quality is really where you'll save in the long run. After a few years the store brands start to crack and disintegrate. Higher quality bands will give you more longevity, which should pay for itself in the long run.
|I just blew a bunch of money on Acco binder clips, so I'm not sure that I can justify these. I splurged and went for the ACC72010 and the grip is really powerful. They blow the Costco Office Impressions clips away. Nice build quality as well. I'm working on a mod to get them to hold 50 sheets of paper (they are rated for 45 sheets). I'll post pictures when I'm done.
And just so you know I'm not blowing smoke, I was a paper boy at 11 and have been using rubber bands ever since. I know what a good rubber band feels like.
