These are great, I like them much better than strung herl since they allow some variation in thickness and length from the top and bottom of the feather. The packs come with enough herls to do many, many flies!
I purchased these in black. The feathers are full with most of the herls being 4 to 5 inches long and almost zero broken tips! However, you should not expect "true" color with this dyed herl. The front side of the feathers are purple while the backs are darker and closer to black. We all know how reflective peacock is, and these feathers reflect a dark purple in all lighting. The stems were black but the individual fibers were various shades of black, purple and green. So don't expect true black.
I ordered the natural choice. They have colorfull large eyes and plenty of material. The picture and description is not missleading at all. Mine arrived in good shape and I would recomend them to anyone needing peacock herl or eyes.
