It's a fiber similar to super hair except thinner and kinkier..if that is helpful.... it is similar to Neer hair and puglisi fibers only thicker and easy to work with.... I simply buttered the entire fly as in the second picture until it set with soft body, instead of softex since I would prefer using softbody instead of softex. Then I tinkered with it.. it became rubbery and I "squeezed" in into shape..flattening and squeezing... then took scissors and cut it to shape... then squeezed and flattenned to finsih it off.... after a couple hours it set more ridgedly.
