With these, you can afford to buy every color! Grade No. 3 Necks may have a little more web, fewer of the smallest hackles (18 or smaller), but still make excellent dry flies. A great value.

Tailing, quills and wooley bugger hackle

Reviewer: from Chester, CT US

As a previous viewer noted these necks do not have the most supple quil but can be very useful to have on the bench. I have a supply of these #3's that I use for tailing....that's right these necks still have spade hackles on them.
You can also use the larger hackles for wooley buggers and stripped quills. Everything is relative...go back 25 years and people would be dying for these necks. They're a good deal.

Metz Grade 3 Neck Hackle

Reviewer: from Elizabeth,CO,USA

Not as high quality as the bronze grade Whitling hackle, however the coloration is absolutely perfect. The price is also another good thing about them. I use this for primarily parachute BWOs.

Get what you pay for I guess

Reviewer: from Greenville, SC US

The #3 rooster neck has very stiff hackle stems that want to twist when winding. It also has less than desirable barb count and most of the feather must be trimmed to get a desirable hackle. Lesser grade dry fly hackles are good for parachutes but in this case the stiff stem makes it a bit tricky. Bottom line, you get what you pay for.

I love these necks

Reviewer: from NY US

Great price,and I have no problems using the feathers. I don't tie much below 16s, but I have yet to run out of approriately sized feathers on any of the ones I have.
