    Hans,

    I'm assuming you are dubbing a bit, then tying in a clump of snowshoe, dubbing a bit more, tying in the next clump, etc. Is this correct?

    Rob, that would be the case if I were using reg dubbing. As it is I am using a dubbing brush. Wrap two turns, cinch down, fold out of the way. Tie in next clump of SS. Etc.

    Cheers,
