Default Congo Fibers?

How do these compare to EP fibers. I have been using EP fibers for Muskie/Bass/Saltwater flies for a while and these fibers are MUCH cheaper. So does anyone use them they are from the fly tying dungeon.

I like Congo hair better than EP fibers.

I don't know about less action, but it is a bit harder to tie with.

Is the EP stuff worth the extra cost? I don't think so, but you may. Buy a bunch of the Congo Hair and see for yourself, it's not like it cost $7 a bundle.
