Is it better to rubber band comb to frames or melt it down and brush the melted wax on the frames?

I read that bees can be enticed into drawing out frames by rubber banding burr comb to the frames or melting it down and brushing wax on the frames. Which is better for encouraging them to draw out comb?

My bees were reluctant to draw comb in the honey super last summer even though they were at over 80% capacity in each brood box. I don't want to have that problem again when I add a honey super on my next inspection.
