Size #4 Cork Stoppers in Extra Select Grade are superb tapered corks. Made from 100% natural cork. Size #4 Extra Select Corks Stoppers are manufactured to exacting standards to provide a secure fit every time. All cork stoppers are visually sorted depending on their quality grade. The cork grade is determined by the lenticels (crevices) that occur naturally in the cork. Extra Select are among the highest grade available, meaning they have smaller and fewer lenticels than a XXX or XXXX grade.
Excellent communication and incredibly fast shipping! I am very impressed with my first purchase!

Makes Excellent Poppers
I recently bought a number of same-sized stopper corks of each grade to assess ONLY their suitability for making fishing poppers. I bought sizes 00, 1, 2, and 4 in all grades. Size 0 Extra Select were out of stock so I only had Premium and Standard. In size 3, I only purchased Extra Select corks so I could compare them to the 150+ size 3 extremely high quality corks I already own. Rather than write a review under each size and grade, I will give a general review of the three grades across all the corks I ordered (105 in total) and post the exact same review under each size and grade. First off, the photos of each grade provided on the website are very accurate. By viewing them, you should have a good idea of what the pits and longer lenticels look like.
In order to make my own assessment across grades as regards their suitability for use as poppers, I devised a five-point rating system based on how much, if any, filling of the pits are required to before painting. A rating of 5 means no filling was needed when applying between one and three coats of mid-quality paint (i.e., the paint typically filled any pits, sometimes completely, sometimes so that only dimples showed.) By mid-quality paint, I mean something on the order of Behr Premium Plus Ultra interior/exterior paint (I used Medium Yellow in my test). A rating of 4 signified that three coats did not cover the defects without minor filling of a cork filling product, but the finished product still looked good without filling. A rating of three signified that some filling was required for the finished product to look good. A rating of 2 signified that the cork had defects that required significant filling before painting. Finally, a rating of 1 indicated a cork that was unsatisfactory due to a defect near one end of the cork that could only be fixed by cutting the cork to form a flat base.
The results of my assessment follow: 80% of the Extra Select corks were rated as quality 5 and 20% as quality 4. For the Premium corks, 15% were quality 5, 60% were quality 4, and 25% were quality 3. For the Standard corks, 15% were quality 5, 30% were quality 4, 45% were quality 3, and 10% were quality 1 (in these cases needing to be cut to form a flat base). If you tie commercially, choose Extra Select to minimize your filling work. For my personal use, I’d use all grades, and I would not fill any corks in quality levels 3-5 (I had no quality level 2 corks, so I can’t speak about them). I used to spend the necessary time to produce commercial-quality cork poppers, but in 60 years of fishing poppers, I found the fish do not care whether there are pits or not!
Service is excellent; shipping is fast.

I am very pleased with the high quality of this product and also appreciate the alacrity with which my order was sent.

Gorgeous stoppers. I definitely like the high-grade cork. I didn't give them a full 5 stars, because I wasn't able to get a perfect seal with them when I used them with a bottle of liquid.

Very nice product fast shipping

Maori salt and pepper set
They are in use again all due to WIDGETCO! Have been trying to find suitable corks that would fit. I was so impressed when these items arrived within 8 days ... USA to UK and I chose the cheapest postal rate, being told 10 to 25 days ! Thanks, will deal with you again !

Grandpa's cane flask is useful after 65 years!
I recently found several of my grandfather's walking canes; the one with the hidden flask (from Prohibition days) still has the glass flask, but without the stopper. You folks are truly a lifesaver! The 'special' corks fit perfectly and hold my favorite beverage inside without leakage. Thanks!

Great Product & Fast Shipping
I did a quick google search for corks and ended up here. Had never heard of WidgetCo previously, but they had the corks we wanted. Ordered 8 corks in the size we needed. We got a receipt e-mailed quickly and a shipping notice the next day. Within about a week from the date we ordered the corks they were at our front door. They were great quality and exactly what we wanted! If I ever need corks again, I'll be back here without hesitation!
