I just bought a pack of these for tying smaller parachutes. They are very easy to work with, and the end product looks great. Can't wait to get out and try these, if they float as well as the original Henry's Fork Hackles, I will be buying more. Highly recommended.
I bought this product (both the ultra light version and the larger size regular version) out of curiosity and have just received them (but not tried them tying a fly yet). You don't get much for the price - 5 strips each about 4" long. The regular size version of the Henry Fork Hackle will likely overwhelm any fly tied on a hook smaller than a size 10, and I doubt whether the smaller Ultra-Light version of this product can be effectively used on flies smaller then about size 14 or 16. I don't yet know how effectively they will float a fly.
I purchased a few packages of these and the other regular HFH and let me tell you - the stuff isn't that great in my experience. While my fly floated it didn't float too well, and they all looked wonky. I'm sure theres a few flies this might work okay on, but don't buy this stuff with the intent of never using regular hackle again...
