If you are looking to purchase long thin rooster feathers for hair extensions or earrings stay away from the "American Rooster Saddle." These feathers are thick and are only 4-7 inches long at most. They make a great background feather to make your earrings seem fuller. Besides their lack of length they are of wonderful quality and come in a variety of wonderful dyed colors.
here are WAY more usable saddles on it than in an equal dollar amount of strung saddle hackles. Other great features are that the feathers are easy to match in pairs (or tris, or quads) for symmetry, seems that all the feathers from the shorter ones to the huge schlappen will be used, and the color and density are great. Also, very little of the annoying weird curves found in strung hackle which makes them useless for tails and wings. If you tie large flies for bass, esox, salt, or big trout streamers, or even traditional feather-wing streamers, this product is a good solid value. Once again, James and the Gang at J.Stockard provide a great product at an honest price.
If you read my reviews, you know that I am an angler and tyer on a budget. These Whiting Farms saddles give you loads of usable feathers and the quality is well worth the price. Other high grade hackle may be required for tiny dry flys, but for overall quality hackle and a great price, Whiting Farms saddles are the way to go.
This is my go-to product for large warmwater/saltwater flies. Feathers are in multiple sizes but most are long and large. I use them mostly for palmering and tailing on large streamers.
