I also agree. I don't know what happened but the marabou I bought 20 years ago was of much better quality than what is offered today. There's probably a story behind the decline in the quality but I have no idea what it is. I use a hell of a lot of marabou so I'm constantly looking for a source with good blood quills.Every pack of marabou ever - 70% useless. can i please pay extra money for only a pack of useable plumes?
eh, ill pass. ill stick with normal dubbing.chop up that 70% of useless marabou plumes (minus stems) into dubbing and now every pack of marabou ever is 99% useful. thats better than the 30%
strip the offending fibers off the stem and insert into a dubbing loop, twist and wrap it forward
