Default To Pluck or Snip?

I was wondering if it is better to just pluck the cones or snip them from the bine?
Also i have some cones on my Nugget that are browning but are not fully developed, should these be picked? They have the hoppy yellow pollen under the leaves.

If a cone doesn't snap off, it isn't ready.


Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
