Topic: Mack shaper tip

At what length do folks tend to tie off blanks made with the Mack tip?  This is with a 47mm staple, by the way.

I use the Mack++ and tie between 73.5 & 74.  That's with 10.5-11.0 cane.

Re: Mack shaper tip

Exactly the same as Lynn, I tie the Mack ++ shape between 73.5 and 74, but only on Loree 47 mm staples.  I don't use the Mack ++ with staples (such as Pisoni, Stevens, etc.) that have wider tube dimensions at the top, as the lower part of the shape seems to be too narrow to work well for me when tied shorter to close properly on larger staple openings.
