here is a link... i have watched it several times and my wiring still leaves something to be desired
but the only way to get really good is to wire wire wire

and then when you are sick of wiring, wire some more.

with the right technique you can use a lot less wire...
and often times, especially with wire, less is more...

Thank you, will watch it. I don't wire for competition, rather to get things done.

no need to be defensive (competition ???)...

if your wire budget is limitless and you dont care about how they look while wired,
then there is no need to bother with the video because you are certainly getting things done...

I wasn't trying to be mean.
I would look into copper wire first thing. Aluminum is OK but for extreme bends and holding power copper is better. You can use smaller gage wire to do the same bend as aluminum wire. That way you don't need to use as much.
I thought my wiring was ok and getting the job done. Once I watched this video I realized I didn't know crap. I'm self taught on just about everything in bonsai. Some things I thought I knew were just plain wrong.
