I just received a new nipple from Wolf for my Lyman GPR.
The flash hole on it is about half the size of the original, can barely get a nipple pick through it.
Thinking this won't be a good thing.
What seems to be the best nipple for these ?

Which nipple did you get? I've never had a problem with their nipples, but that might boil down to me ordering a different one that you did.  I'm shooting mostly Goex black, but best I recall my nipples caused no issues with Pyrodex or Triple Seven when I've used those.  Maybe the smaller size is "concentrating" the flame for the cap for better ignition?  Dunno, but I'm not above speculating.

Sounds like the same one I get. The fit for the CCi #11 is a good thing, cuzz Lyman nipples don't fit that particular cap right.  If you're using Pyrodex and experience any ignition issues, then it might be time to go to a Hotshot nipple. But I'd wait on that till you've given this one a good wrestle.

I bought two hot shot nipples and they both seem like there is something in hole. I cannot get a cleaner through them. They both work good though.

So I tried the new Nipple today from TOW.
About at least a 25% misfire rate.
Put the original back on and no misfires.
I figured the hole would be to small to allow enough sparks through it.
Will order a Knight Hot shot nipple.
