It differs from the classic Cactus for its thin and knitted particular core, which allows the effect fibers to be arranged more sparsely, yet strongly held. This material is of considerable help for the construction of medium-small bodies, without bulking the artificial pattern too much.
This is suitable for small and medium patterns. With an increased-size core designed to withstand high tensions.
The fine core means really slim bodies are possible. Try Brill on a curved hook for a fantastic bloodworm pattern or any of the natural colours under a shellback for a superb (and very quick to tie) shrimp. Or use it on a sparsely tied salmon pattern, the options are endless. Lower fibre density coupled with fine core makes great thoraxes for bead head flies.
