I learned to stack deer hair by watching John M. (his last name escapes me for the momment) UFT here in Mass...But his bass bugs were incredible.... he would only superglue the first aplication of the spun hair..that is, glue the thread wraps to the shank in front of the stacked hair... then he would not do that for each application so that the thread AND hairs would push easier together along the shank(Slide along the shank unimpeded ) and it would really pack them in...then, as already mentioned.... a razor blade conpletes the job. Trim down with scissors first...then use the razor for the finishing touchs.
