MEC Smooth-Cone Spindex Crimp Starter (#1308462S)
for paper hulls
The Spindex is MEC's nylon-molded crimp starter kit. This is a low-cost replacement for the heads that become worn over time.
NOTE: If you are crimping new, unfired hulls you may need the increased sharpness and crimp depth supplied by the brass-machined Super Crown Crimp Starter. (See information below.)
The Universal Charge Bar is an alternative product that may save you money and storage space. Some people prefer using their bushings with original MEC Charge Bars, while others like the universal adjustability of the Universal Charge Bar.

Better Crimps: When loading new/primed hulls, your crimps may not stay closed if you are using a standard plastic crimp starter. The Super Crown Crimp Starter is designed to put a lasting crimp memory into new plastic, essential for tight and functional crimps on new hulls. The Super Crown also provides better crimps on once-fired hulls too.
