I guess I must be inherently lazy. I buy my bags already cut and sized to what I need. I use 3 mil bags and very rarely ever get one that fails. If I get a fail, it is more because I did not wait enough time between seals. The machine I use is a Weston which is similar to the CG-11.
Glad to see that I'm not the only one getting lazy. I've had a lot less broken seals by doing it like this. While I've only got a cheap Foodsaver, I've found that after sealing these bags, I'll trim a little off and do a double seal on the bags...works much better than buying a roll of bags.
