I use Deb Tucker's rulers (Studio 180 Designs). Wing Clipper for flying geese and Tucker Trimmer for HSTs. You cut everything (per the ruler instructions) just a bit larger than normal and then trim them down to size, so you get great accuracy.

Flying geese: Deb Tucker's Wing Clipper
HST: Easy Angle and Companion Angle or Bonnie Hunter's new ruler

Edit: EIquilter, you were posting while I was typing.

I use dies too. My hsts sew accurately, no trimming down. Sure saves a lot of time.

For FG I like Eleanor Burns' ruler. I don't use a special ruler for HST's.

I don't use specialty rulers... i have some, but using my regular rulers have become a habit.

I have the Easy Angle (for wings) and the Companion Ruler (for the geese) and they work fine, but Bonnie Hunter has a new ruler the Essential Triangle ruler does both wings and geese.

I've not tried the Deb Tucker ruler.

Below are video's of Bonnie's and Deb's rulers to help you decide.
