I bought this to facilitate making my dubbing on nymphs more shaggy. It works, particularly on Antron dubbing. I use this rake and a stiff bristle brush. Both have their place in one's bag of tricks.
I find this tool very valuable as a dubbing rake, when I want dubbing from a hare's mask or other materials. When using it with a hare's mask, one obtains a nice blend of guard hairs and softer, differently colored underfur. It can be useful with synthetic materials, too, as another review mentioned.
However, I prefer to use a softer, smaller dubbing teaser on most (smaller) trout flies, such as a thin piece of Velcro (the rough part) mounted on a wooden coffee stirrer, reserving this tool for big stoneflies, other large dubbed nymphs and streamers, etc.
I purchased this Rake after looking at a ceramic rake costing tons of money more and was not sure it would work. This Rake is absolutely awesome, I used it on a Badger pelt raking with the hair to remove underfur for dubbing. I love it and will be ordering one for my son with my next order.
Have a great and blessed day, go fishing if you get the chance.
