Has anyone tried the HoggHalfcomb system for honey comb production? I am thinking of trying it but don't want to lose the colony as an experiment if it doesn't work.

A lot of these comb honey methods require explosively strong hives in order to work. I have even heard of beekeepers condensing down a strong colony to a single deep and using these types of systems. Seems like the swarm risk can be pretty high.

My hives are medium in terms of strength. Out of about 12, I would rate 1 as very strong. So I don't think I wasn't to waste it on the hope of comb honey knowing I can get supers filled with honey.
