I used both, and find the freshlocker bags to be better so far (in the smaller 8'' bags)
Out of 100 the Ronegye had maybe 5-6 seal fail on my foodsaver, and out of 50 freshlocker, 0 so far. They feel closer in quality to the actual foodsaver bags imo, but that is mostly subjective.
Haven't bought this brand, but I can share the sentiments about the other brand. Quite a few bags failed for me too. Always had a sneaking suspicion that it was the bags... Something didn't feel right.

Great bags. Switched from Food Savers to these and have found no problem.

There are two types of failure happened to me from using those thinner bag (3 mil). The first type is the sealing problem which happened from time to time and I believe everyone has different experience about this. The second problem is the bag is too thin and cannot sustain the inside pressure if you have an item with sharp edges or points. I tried to use a 3 mil bag to seal a dog treat with lots of sharp edges. The sealing process went fine, but after about a week, the vacuum was completely lost. The problem is not from the sealing since the seal remained intact. The sharp edge actually cut through the bag by the pressure inside the bag. Then I try to use the freshlocker bag and the vacuum still maintain(after 2 months), so if your meat has sharp bone and lost the vacuum very frequently, then try to use this 4 mil freshlocker bag may solve the problem.

can you cut down the size of the precut bags and just seal them smaller?

Debating on which bag to get. Pre-cut, 8" or 11". Any suggestions?

same... i did the math...

the double roll of the 11 isnt available... so the 8 and 11 one roll each comes out as more expensive than the 100 pre cut ones.

i just need to know if you can still seal them if i cut the bag in half length.

edit: looks like based on the photos.. its textured mouth to bottom so my guess is you can cut it. im buying the precut bags... i dont see myself vacuum sealing a human leg or anything long.

This is about as much I would spend on a sucker type sealer before moving onto a chamber.
$50 is a small investment to see if you're into it. But if you do any sort of volume, consider a chamber.

I bought the 100pcs 11"x16" and 100pcs 8"x12" for only $34.38.
Damn that's cheap. That's pretty close to the price of Chamber bags.
4mil chambers out of Webstaurant are $66USD($89CAD)/1000 for 8x12 and $130USD($175CAD)/1000 for 12x16.
Assuming they're of decent quality, it's getting harder to argue price based on these numbers.

I'd still buy one because these seem to be one off prices rather than regular.
But if you're only using it once a week (like I was for a Foodsaver) this is still a great deal.

I'd never buy rolls again.
It's fine if you're making one bag, but if you do even a few bags, you're wasting 10 minutes making bags.

Rolls only makes sense if you're sealing something like a whole fish where bags aren't available for sucker type sealers.

Note that the machine already comes with some bags as part of starter kit.

Why did amazon try to sell me the 4 year protection plan for the 100 pieces of bags?

I guess we need a group buy for those Chamber bags from Webstaurant, it's about $9 CDN for 100pcs
