    Somewhere at home I have an actual count on the small cell and large cell. I'll see if I can find it.

    are these figures right?? if so how can a 8 1/2 inch frame have 8700 on one side and this plastic frame only have "The cell count is 2250 cells per side"?

    Yep - it can be right, the plastic cell walls are thicker and a fair number of cells are completely filled in. Personally I see this product merely as a means to instantly "regress" bees, that would then be transferred to wax. Similar to Michael’s waxed dipped permacomb, but with less hassle.
