    If you want prolific/most common used then marabou. If you want something you can shape then Congo hair.

    You could also try squirrel tail or Arctic Fox, both come dyed in a multitude of colours & are more durable than marabou.

    If you go for marabou, give the "blood plumes" a try for a sleeker profile

    I love using artic fox, lovely action in the water similar to marabou but lasts a lot longer. quite a difference in price but worth it imo anyway.
