Use as Directed -

When used in a dubbing loop (as suggested), this is an excellent material. Super buggy, durable, and all sorts of movement under water. I like it for big attractor patterns like the Red Fox Squirrel nymph and oversized hares ears for carp.

I was expecting less rubber inside but that's the way it comes. For the beginner or intermediate tier, can be tricky to dub unless you use a dubbing loop in the thread. Suggest trimming the rubber back in production

Flies look good and have good action, but material is very hard to dub. Plan on taking some time using this stuff.
NEEDS WORK -
By: roby from PITTSBURGH; PA.
I FOUND THIS DUBBING TO BE DIFFICULT TO WORK WITH DUE TO THE AMOUNT OF RUBBER FLECKS IT CONTAINS . THE PRINCIPLE BEHIND THIS IS GOOD (MOTION ATTRACTS FISH ) NOT SURE HOW THIS PRODUCT WILL HOLD UP AFTER A FEW CASTS . ALSO SOME ISSUES WITH RIBBING WHEN TYING WITH THIS PRODUCT . FINE WIRE RIBBING DID NOT DO WELL

The rubber leg material in this dubbing typically requires loop dubbing to hold well. Ribbing must be done carefully to avoid trapping rubber fibers awkwardly. We apologize for any inconvenience this caused, and will gladly accept the dubbing back for a refund. You can always shop with confidence at Orvis—everything we sell is backed by our unconditional 100% satisfaction guarantee.
this product is okay. it is difficult to work with because there is to much rubber so it dosnt stay on the thread without using a dubbing loop

Cool product -

I bought this to tie hares ear nymphs, it performes flawlessly. But the only issue with it was there is too much rubber in it and it gets in the way of the size 20's i was tying. but other than that, its a fantastic product!
