Default Peacock Herl vs Peacock Black Ice dub

So 4 weeks in to my new obsession fly tying. I have found I am hammer fisted and tend to pull to hard on the peacock herl and snap them. So I got a bag of Peacock Black Ice Dub. I used it on a bunch of pheasant tails , Z-Wing Caddis today and it worked real well. I can see where if the pattern doesnt have a wing case and just the thorax I would use the real herl.


What are your guys thoughts or tricks besides not pulling so hard I break the herl ?
