    I'm very disapointed. I thought the title was "How Fronkey gets down". I was expecting to see some one bust a move.
    Look up before you hook up!!

    Now you've done it, next video Fronkey will be getting down with his down.

    It worked so much better and the way I did it before we made your UQ. I kept saying if you remember, "Man, I did this so much easier last time." Well, I made a video so I wouldn't forget again.

    Good stuff dude! Looks like a much easier and more effective method than most I've seen.

    Cheers

    Great instructional vid, Fronkey! Simple and clean. You may have revolutionized down stuffing for me. I've struggled with how to get all the down from the package to the baffle for years, without having flyaway down go all over the place!! Awesome, dude! Thanks for sharing....

    Oh....and cool jammies too! lol

    Fronkey, thanks for enlightening us on this clean and easy method. one question, since you put all that down in that baffle, how do you measure out your down? I think WL packages in 1oz packs, or do you measure it some other way? Thanks again.

    When I transferred down to add extra to a UQ it was never this easy. This is great. You almost make me want to make a quilt. But not quite! People will really benefit from this. Nicely done.

    That method blows the Christmas pants off my down stuffing technique. I'll be trying that when I go to make my summer TQ latter this year.
