I have purchased corks from Widgetco several times. The service is always excellent. I normally get the 1 + 1 corks, but decided last summer to try the colmated corks. They look great, as the flaws are hidden, but there's flaws underneath. About 10% of the corks tore apart either in the corking or uncorking process. I've gone back to the 1+1 corks.
