Yeah I would as his stuff looks great like I said I was just mad at the time to have to bin a material I needed and have to order again and wait even longer

In your madness was it a pedal bin and did you jump up and down on the pedal or did you storm out the back to the big bin? Should have kept your cool Gareth and salvaged some hackles from the cape

HI bud, I would say get yourself a honey badger and dye it sunburst, don't bother with the veniard dye as its not a true sunburst shade mate .

I'm shocked that you got a bad cape from Sam, I've been dealing with him for more years than I care to remember and always got top quality gear. Maybe a quick email to him when you bought the Cape and without doubt he would have sorted you out mate.

Ive bought golden yellow acid dye


https://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/All-in-one-...=1527244601013

And a honey badger cape, do you think that dye will ne ok.

Reference the Sam thing, could we leave it now, the cape was horrendous and I was fuming, in retrospect I probably should of contacted him but I was very very annoyed after seeing someone else had complained before and he was still sending out unusable stuff. Hes blocked me ,its a shame as I like his stuff but oh well its done now. I didnt know anything about the guy other than he was just an ebay seller had I of spoke to you guys first I may of been less angry. I had waited for the postman that day and was gutted I couldnt use it so I binned it.
