    Default Faux bucktail substitute

    Anybody tried this before?!

    Looks pretty good, one benefit being that it's not crinkly.

    If it's an good it could be a good option....

    Because I've found our over recent weeks that finding good quality bucktail is next to impossible

    They should make a yellow and orange mix, or Willie gunn mix would be a good seller, save all that blending.

    Hard to see from the photos whether it's got much (if any) of a taper
