Default 1/4" or 3/8" bands?

Looking at placing an order through pet edge, what size of grooming bands do I want? Mini/Sheltie mix with fine soft hair.

I would go with 3/8 personal preference. It's easier to manipulate with my fingers

What are you getting them for? Petedge's bands should be used only for bows...they break coat like crazy!! I found that out the hard way lol. If you are trying to tie up her topknot, you will want something like this: medium bands I use the fine weight for Raven, I really like them.

Oh thank you both! Now I have two new sites to make "wish lists" for! I'll for sure take the PE ones off my order as I want them to tie up her top knot.
