I'm not worried about bag appeal. I'm not selling it to anyone. but it sounds like I may need to give the AC Infinity trimmer a try. I am all about streamlining and simplifying my grow.Look at my thread "inexpensive trimmer" where I tried on a lark, the Infinity model. With a little adjusting and correct turning, it did a way better job than I ever imagined. This was with wet buds. Still may need a little touch up. Big time saver for me. For the most stupendous bag appeal, dry with putes method and hand trim.
