    Default Pixels for Boscoyo strips

    I am going to redo my mega tree for next year with Boscoyo strips. I was planning on square pixels but read on another board that they do not fit in the strips. Anybody have problems using the square pixels?

    I used the square style on my MT and they went in the strips just fine.

    The only real difference between all the squares we have and the bullets is the squares don't have as deep a penetration.
    We have 5 megatrees (64 strings of 50 pixels each = 3,200 pixels) that were originally built with the square nodes. As far as mounting, they work real good with the original strips Boscoyo makes as well as the megamatrix units. I'm not sure how they do in the new, thicker, strips. That may be what you are hearing about.

    The squares work just fine in the new thicker continuous strips. I pushed 2400 of them in this season and they’re holding just fine.

    I should have mentioned in my previous reply that I used the new thicker continuous strips for my MT this year and the squares that I got from both DIYLEDExpress and Ray did just fine.

    All this talk about square pixels on MT's makes me wish I had done the same. Do they store better than strips with bullets? I've always thrown my strips into a plastic bin but I think this year I might collapse the tree and stretch wrap it. Seems like square pixels would store better that way.

    Like anything in this hobby, there are pros and cons for use of either square or bullet pixels.

    In our case, the strips with square pixels did store "easier" than the bullets. (They loaded onto the strips easier as well.) Unfortunately this year proved to be a whole lot of square pixels going bad. Moisture infiltration has been the majority of the problems. Note that these are finishing their 5th year so age may be a problem with the waterproofing.

    Our bullet mounted pixels store easy enough on the Boscoyo strips into storage tubs. All of our trees will be changed over to bullets after we tear down for the year. We still use bullets for all the snowflakes, candy canes, and other coro based props.
