Default Dry Hopping

I'm thinking about dry hopping an ipa in the near future. What is the best wayt to contain the hops so they aren't just loose in the secondary?

Some people use a hop sack, I've heard of pantyhose, also paint strainer bags, sanitized with a few marbles in it, to keep it from floating.

I just put them in loose, then strain them by covering the tip of my autosiphon with part of a paint strainer bag from the home improvement stores.

Put in a small grain bag. Many people sanitize some marbles and put them in too so the bag sinks.

Why not just throw them in loose? I always do this and everything sinks with cold crashing and gelatin. You've got options!

I usually use paint strainer bag, but if this are leaf hops you can just toss them in, they will float on top of beer.
When racking be prepared to pull racking cane off when it comes to hops.
