Default Speed Strips/ Speed Loaders?

Hey fellers.

I'm sure some of y'all know this, who makes speed strips/ speed loaders?

Are either of these products worth while?

I will soon have (2) .357 Magnum revolvers would like to be able to reload fast as possible.

I have HKS speed loaders for all of my revolvers. Bought from Midway I think...

Same here they are about $10+/-, so there's no reason not to get 3-4/gun. They loosen up after a while if you handle them constantly, (in and out of pockets or car) but are pretty durable overall.

Practice a bit with them though.

I have both HKS and Safariland speedloaders (I prefer the Safariland) and I also have Bianchi Speed Strips for my .38 and Tuff Products Strips for my .38 and .45 LC.

I have HKS and Safariland speedloaders and Tuff speed strips. I find the speed strips the most useful (flat in the pocket, and I don't like wearing a custom speed loader holder on my belt).

I use the speedloaders for my bedside and desk drawer guns and use the speed strips in my pocket when I am out.
