Other than insert free are there any real differences in brands? I realize there are different profiles like flipping vs bullet, but is any one brand better?

I've used a bunch of different brands. For me, Picasso seem to be a cut above the rest.

I have made 3 orders from them, I have bought the StrikeKing and these are some of the best I've used with the best prices. The finish on them are second to none!

Some have a higher percentage of tungsten making the profile as small as possible. Some of the cheaper tungsten is less than 97%.
Have you ever noticed two different brands of tungsten in the same weight but one brand is bigger in profile than the other?

I would say that some have a better finish in the line holes.

I've used numerous brands and I think there's definitely a difference. I pretty much stick to Strike King, Reins, or TenBears. Picasso and Swagger are pretty good. Eco Pro isn't that great if you ask me.
