I agree with other posters. I will mix between the two. I like th durability of the featherweight, but hate cleaning them. I have tried the ziplock bag trick before, but I always have a blowout with them.

th only time i use disposable it when i take a repair kit with me on a delivery, otherwise its parchment 99% of the time for me. I use FW for borders and larger tips.

If Im not changing the tip, I just throw the tip in the bag without a coupler, then just cut the bag a little above the tip to get it out when Im done. If im changing tips, I use a coupler.

Fine piping RI or BC - parchment

Masses of buttercream - disposable all the way. I get them via eBay for $6 per 100. They are rough on the outside, easy to handle.

RI - either disposable or canvas depending on the thickness of the RI, and fine-ness of the tip.

i use disposables. ok it may surprise many people that i wash my disposable bags icon_razz.gif and reuse, until they are non-reusable anymore (that'll take a while to happen).

another thing, while i do have couplers, i don't really like using them. so what i do is, i stuff icing in one dispo bag (call it bag #1), then take another dispo bag (bag #2) and put the tip in bag #2.
then put bag #1 IN bag #2.

when i need to change tips, i just take bag #2 out, change the tip, and put it back on again. so less one equipment to wash : coupler. bag #2 is normally clean, so no throwing or washing needed, most of the time.

I'm curious if anyone has ever found a disposable bag smaller than 12"? I like the ease of the disposable, but when you only need to put a little icing in a bag it seems like a waste to use a 12" bag. :)

the nice thing about the parchment triangles, is when you just need a tiny bit of icing for glue or small accents you can cut the triangle in half and you have small parchment bags.

Canvas for now, but only because I haven't gotten around to ordering more disposable ones. I prefer ateco over wilton . I would love to work more with parchment, Where can I find precut parchment triangles ? Sometimes my measurements are off and I end up with wonky triangular shapes

"CK Products parchment triangles 15"

I've have had the box for ages, don't remember where they came from, but I use them often.

I love featherweight bags, and don't mind disposable.

I don't like that with disposable, if your using a thick icing the bag can burst from the pressure.
So I put the icing in a disposable bag and cut off the end (a fair bit, maybe 2 to 3 cm), prepare the featherweight bag with a coupler and tip, then put the disposable bag (that's full of your icing) in the featherweight bag. Then you only have to clean a small amount of the featherweight bag and the tip and can throw the other bag out.
