I started with the Dadant EZ frames, sort of what youre talking about, I think. I have five hives with it inside now.It works good for me, but one(ok, a few) words of advice...be sure you mash them all together tightly when putting them in your boxes(deeps). If you dont you will have burr comb, bridge comb, and comb that isnt even attached to the foundation but just hanging down from the edge of the frame like wild natural comb does..I didnt know better at first, but I got those 9 frame spacers and used them in my first deeps.Dont use the spacers in your brood boxes or you'll have the same problem as I did.
Ok, I know what you mean about everybody else using wood frames...I use them too now, and i plan on staying with them...They are very cheap, sometimes as cheap as 25cents a piece! For me,Making the wood frames and using foundation(I use plastic foundation) was at first intimidating to me, but after I made my first frame and saw how easy it was, I wont go back to EZ frames now. I still like them ok but i wont go back to them. They cost too much!
