Smiley's break, Cottonmouths seem flimsy

Does anyone know of plugs better than Smiley's or Cottonmouths? I used to have a pair I bought at The Canoe Rack in Missoula MT (which unfortunately is out of business) that were really nice. Unlike Smiley's that bend easily and thus slip off your nose and/or break, these were made from a much larger wire that was just pliable enough to adjust and stiif enough that they wouldn't deform while paddling and showed no sign of ever breaking. I lost em, dang it. Anybody know of plugs like that?

I've had smiley's for about 2 years now, and haven't had a problem with them slipping off at all. I've tried the Shred Ready one's with the foam nose pads, but the bar it is on is too stiff, which causes them to slip off frequently.

From the description of the ones that you had and lost, I think this may be them. CKS here in CO has them.

Maybe these are the ones that you're lookin for? They're called the 'Squeeze Nose Clips.'

Here's the link:

Cottonmouths work fine for me, but if you are looking for something with a thicker wire, contact Bob.
Bob is a buzzard and manufactures his own noseplugs, they are good, and I'm sure he can hook you up.
Here's a direct link to his profile, I would suggest a PM
