    Cloth, I find no advantage to metal. You can also find a new panty hose color when replacing the nylon. But I never use fishnet, doesnt work!!!

    OK, my turn Ginger or Maryann??

    Can't remember off hand what brand mine is. Music Accessories I think - it's great.

    I don't have any experience with metal pop filters, can't imagine they'd be that great at all...I'm probably wrong though just for saying that.

    Metal does have the advantage of being easily cleaned. A quick spraying with some Lysol and a paper towel and I'm ready for the next heavy breather...
    One of the great tips I got here on RO:
    There are these kitchen tools called "splatter screens". These are a circular metal mesh screen, about 8" in diameter, with a wire handle. They were designed to lay on top of a frying pan to minimize grease splattering (duh!). They also make a great pop screen!!!! It took a couple of monthly trips to my local Dollar Store to find them, and when I did, I snapped up half a dozen. I duct tape them to a gooseneck, and usually stretch a section of pantyhose over them, VOILA!!! I find this works better than ANY commercial screen!
    THANK YOU , REMY !!!
