I use hog rings, mainly because that's what I grew up using and I already had the pliers.

I use the tape machine for tube bags because it's fast and works well, nice when doing a lot. I use hog rings on summer sausage.

I have the tape machine, but I had a problem with the tape coming loose and opening up in the freezer. the hog rings are cheap, gonna try those this year.
