    I have both and I think I actually like the Deva clips better. I have to use more, but they don't fall over and end up doing nothing like I've experienced with the Duckbill clips. I also find that they slide in and out of the hair better than the Duckbills. The Duckbills are long and can cover more area, but it doesn't do much good if they fall over and don't hold. I have a lot of thick hair on the top so that probably plays into to it, too.

    You should go to Sally Beauty if you have one in your area. They have a huge selection of clips, and the prices are so low. I have been playing around with different sets. Right now I am loving the Salon Care brand, they are plastic and come in a package of about 12, maybe more. There is one row of pink and one of purple in the package, and they were less than $2. I would link you to a pic, but I can't get on the Sally website right now. But, you can search the site, they have a whole section devoted to clips. Good luck!

    I prefer the deva clips. They are plastic and don't snag in my hair the way the duckbill clips do.

    I can't use the duckbill clips. They snag horribly in my hair. I've never had a problem with deva clips - and I have inadvertently left one in my hair a couple of times before but because it was brown, it didn't really matter all that much.
    Variation of 3B/3C curls.

    Amazed that I finally found a method that works for my hair! Diffuse until 60-70% dry, then let air dry for about an hour. Scrunch and leave it alone!

    Deva clips rock! I struggled with the duckbill clips for about six weeks before discovering the Deva clips. As just about everyone here has said, the metal duckbill clips fall over and slip out, even if you barely move around. I really love the Deva clips and also have sometimes left them in without much worry, since they blend in so well.

    But yeah, they're ridiculously expensive and if Sally's has anything comparable, by all means buy them. The advantage of Deva clips, though, is that they come in colors that blend with hair *and* they come in a little container, which is nice for travel.

    There is a thread here somewhere where people posted pictures of their clipping... i'll look for it.

    BTW one more difference be careful because the metal clips get hot when using a blow dryer.
