Krystal tinsels like SemperFlash Krystal Copper are standard in most fly tyers materials boxes. As usual with Semperfli we wanted to improve SemperFlash Krystal Copper so spent lots of time looking at alternatives.
When we manufactured these Krystal tinsels we did market research and found that most tinsels were tied in half, meaning lots of the tinsel in the centre was unuseable plus only half of each hank could be used for larger predator flies. As a consequence with SemperFlash Krystal Copper you get 10” / 25cm long hanks tied at the top rather than center tied tinsels meaning that you can produce really long wings on flies for saltwater or large predators.
There are 300 strands of this beautiful SemperFlash Krystal Copper in each pack which is such great value. With full useable length of 10” strands these can be used to create flies from the smallest chironomid/buzzer breathers to huge Tarpon or Muskie flies using the full 10” length of this amazing SemperFlash Krystal Copper winging material
