Search the Frequently Asked Questions:

Most flair bartenders I know, myself included, prefer weighted tins as they claim the weight helps them flip a little better. It’s really personal preference. While I generally recommend weighted tins, be aware that over time and abuse the weighted end may eventually loosen and fall off. It happens. Of the 40 tins I’ve had for the last 5 years, I’ve probably had about 10 fall off. For 5 years, that’s not too bad. And I use the heck out of my tins.
