I started using this tool on my deer hair bugs and have been very pleased with the quality. The Anvil Packer is solid brass and is a serious tool - built to last generations. At $15.60 this is a tool we should all have on our benches. You can safely pack deer hair on hooks ranging from a size 32 to 14/0. The guard protects your fingers from the point/barb and helps apply even pressure on the hook shank.
The head on this Wilderdilch is nice and full. The Anvil Packer is a great tool for creating durable and well balanced bugs!
Smallmouth on a deer hair popper...can't get any better than that!
