Question What brand of pin do you use on your flat/prefolds?

I am unsure of which one to buy...there are so many, but some have bad reviews of the tips not being able to go through the layers. What do you mamas like? I am new to pins I have come full circle (pockets, fitteds, prefold laying in a cover, etc, etc, now I am loving my flats!!)

Thanks for your advice

I prefer the Gerber pins. I keep them in a bar of soap on my changing table so they slide right through the fabric. The Babies R Us ones are a joke. Pretty sure they're only for baby shower games. The Sassy ones are equally terrible. I've also had several different types with metal ends that I didn't like, but I don't honestly know the brand(s). I've never tried Dritz because I was so happy with Gerber.
