    Who is Nuff, and why did he say it?

    I have over 100 hives that are 100% PC, I guess you can count me in too.

    I purchased 4 deep boxes from them and look forward to using it next year. I have a friend who recommended it but did find that those frames that he introduced later in the season weren't as readily accepted. However, he has been pleased as well. I will also be focusing more on wax foundations as well as permacomb for the brood boxes

    Papar,
    You may be confusing PermaComb with Honey Super Cell. PC comes in a medium depth frame only and is about 5.0 MM. HSC comes in deep only and is around 4.9 MM.

    If you have fully drawn plastic mediums it is PC.
    If you have fully drawn plastic deeps it is HSC.

    So far for me the PC is working better than the HSC, but that is the first full year results for a really poor year. I know what I have with the PC and I really like it. IF we have a good year next year, and having used and accepted HSC, will tell a better tale whether HSC will be the way to go with deep broods.
