Default Re: Peacock Herl vs Peacock Black Ice dub

There's nothing at all wrong with using the peacock dub IMO. In fact, I use it all the time. I like the extra shine I get off of it. But like wt bash said, twisting it together will help out too. If it's durability I'm after, chances are I'll use the dubbing. However, I generally lose or change a fly long before it's worn out. When they do wear out, I take them back to the tying desk and take a razor to it and tie it again.
