Rated 3 out of 5 by experiencedtyer About what I expected
I never shop @ bps but had a small G/C to use. Thought I'd roll the dice on some deer hair.
I inspected each patch and stacked some sample sections to evaluate for use. Hair length ranges from 1/2" to 1-1/2". Patch sizes are all near 2-1/4" x 2-1/2". The hair is loaded with underfur, and almost all has long tips. I had hoped for early season deer for compara-duns (as advertised), but this is clearly not early season. Only a small amount will tie suitable compara-duns. I'll find use for some of it, but much of it will go in the trash.
As every tyer should know, you're best off buying hair and feathers in person. Buying them online is always a gamble.
