I have been playing around with my stuffed series of nymphs. Changed the dubbing on thorax, was using Arizona Synthetic Peacock. I'm now using a blend of Squirrel SLF Spikey dubbing and the matching color in UV Ice Dubbing. Changed the wingcase material toWonder wrap in a matching color. The Squirrel SLF Spikey Dudding is super cool. The beads are all still the same Montana Fly Luccent Tungsten Beads.
The reason for the changes was the new color of Luccent bead that came out called Deep blue. Came up with a new color combo in the stuffed series called the Stuffed Blue

Rib: Lagartun fine peacock blue and X-SM silver
