How are OPST Ostrich Drabs different? Obtaining high quality Ostrich feathers is becoming more and more difficult by the day, week, month. Pure and simple, every business that deals in Ostrich is in competition for the best of the best. And it has to be at low prices and some industrial processes take the best ostrich off the table before the fly tyers ever have a shot at it. OPST Barred Ostrich Drabs have fluffy barbules and are very nicely and distinctly marked, as the photo of the product shows.
Two feathers per pack: be advised that one feather is larger than the other. All providers of Ostrich struggle to provide consistent quality feathers, but the reality is that there are differences in feather characteristics from batch to batch. In our use of the OPST Ostrich feathers, we reserve the largest plume for our larger Intruders and use the second, smaller plume for our trout Intruders or for the butt section of steelhead and Chinook Intruders. Our point here is to state up front that our customers should expect some variation in size of feathers and that there is a good use for the largest and smallest barbules on each feather.
