I tie my own. Usually a darker green, and sometimes vary it by using a maribou tail of a contrasting color (red or yellow). They all seem to be equally effective, though.
Yesterday evening I caught bluegill, crappie, and LM bass on them at the local lake.
Should have taken a pic of one bass.
A 3" bass smacked it like he was starving!
Not much of a fight, but the little guy sure was ferocious with the attack.
edited to add:
I switched to a #16 foam ant as the sun set, and also had good luck with it.
Some nice 'gills, and the largest crappie of the evening.
