We never did understand why you should dub without brushing. The ultimate qualities of dubbing are to create a body that reflects and lets through as much light as possible. Most dubbings have too short strands to fit big flies. If you brush it half of the material will fall off which makes it impossible to get the right luster. The structure of the SSS dubbing consists of transparent synthetic fibers, dyed and mixed with the SSS Angel Hair blends. The strands of the Angel Hair are cut long enough to enable the brushing without them falling off the body. The 15 color combinations give you many imaginable variations for everything you tie! SSS dubbing comes in 15 color blends.
