I've been using them almost exclusively for close to three years. Great lifetime out of the plugs.

How do there plug types (#5, etc ) compare to say OS or Novarossi brands?

Basically trying to know that is someone say use this Novarossi or OS plug type, the Odonnel # whatever is equivalent.

I use the 099 standard plug in my Nova P5X as well as my Max Power M5, both running 30% OD.
