There are other options for the APD than silofex. I use Golf Tubes and
they worked extremely well and easy to work with as well. The Jumbo Size
Golf Tubes is the size that I buy from Wal-Mart for about .69 cents
apiece and I can get approximately 10 to 12 APD's per golf tube.
Golf Tube APD's are approval. Ld Gilli and several others developed this
APD's last year and got it approval by both Ansteorra and at Society
