    I use Pierco black plastic frames and I think they are great. I also use wooden foundationless. I am to lazy to mess with foundation. I think the plastic frames are the best, but the wooden foundationless are cheaper.

    I've had trouble with bees drawing plastic out correctly unless I make the spacing closer, for example, start with 10 frames and later reduce to 9.

    Also, it's harder to cut out queen cells when they're on plastic.

    I have a field trial going on this April 2012.
    I explained to Nick at Pierco that I was hot bees wax coating his one coating product to insure that they get drawn out and he suggested the 02 type
    I purchased the Pierco 02 which is double coated, supered a strong medium, waited 10 days, and checked the hive on 4/24/2012.
    Results:

    5 perfectly drawn out frames on both sides from top bar to bottom bar!
    photos will follow after a local rain.
