Just take a look at the IMAGE that’s a Pro-Grade Cape so how long are the hackles on a GOLD GRADE, let me tell you they are totally unbelievable!!! So as you go higher up the Medal system what do you get for your money!! A BIGGER Cape, MORE densely Hackled, MUCH,MUCH Longer Hackles and a much greater size range taking you into the 20-24’s. The Gold and Silver Cape hackles are so long they look more like saddle hackles!!! Take a look NOW at GOLD GRADE, SILVER GRADE, BRONZE GRADE, PRO-GRADE. If you tie mainly size 16 and larger go for the PRO-Grade, Bronze Grade will take you down to size 18 and larger, there is a big difference between bronze and Silver Grade these will go into the 20’s but the hackles are now getting very LONG and you will be tying around 8 flies or more per-hackle!! Gold Grade will take you well into the 22’s, Large Pelt, Long Hackles with a large volume of smaller hackles!!!
