If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

I like insect pins because theyre so thin, and theyre easy to drive in. I also like the euro pins especially when I want a "stop" feature of the handles besides just the shaft angle of the pin. Good products are popular products.

Not always ...

The thinnest Euro Pins are not thinner than the thinnest Insect Pins ... that's just a fact.  Whew!  A lot of 'th' words in that sentence! ;D

I think they are. Most good taxidermists I know not only have some "orange handles" on their pins, they also have a tube of insect pins as well. To me, thats a popular item...because theyre good.

the ones I just order are from china and are sold as insect pins, I didn't order the euro pins, picture is to small to see if they have gold tips or not.  I hope I'm getting what they are advertise as anyways?

I have the fine pins that are just as John described, with the little plastic dot of a head on them, and just as he described, theyre for the insect pinning to riker mounts and drying boards. I also have a fine pin that is labelled as an insect pin, very fine again, but with a flat head. Theyre fine, stiff and almost invisible if you had to leave one in the mount.

I have had them so long I forget, likely Buckeye Mannikins back in the day, as I dont pin much. I bought the others because, and youll laugh, I actually do pin out certain moths I collect or raise. My guess would be to try Research Mannikins or even Jonas Bros first. Someone here might have a better source and memory, lol. PM John, he usually knows this stuff.

Research Mannikins had some of the very thin black pins labeled as "insect pins" at the Indiana show last year.  They were the ones with the flat heads.

just got my order of pins in today, both are the  same 000 size, different suppliers. one is gold top on black stainless steal pin. the other which I wasn't 100% sure what I was ordering when I did. are accupuncture pins. stainless and copper wrapped top, I actually like them much better. they have much larger tops to see and not loose them in the hide somewhere and they are a good bit longer in length.
