Okay...I will be tying mostly size 12 and 14 dries with some 10s and 16s. I will be tying parachutes in mainly 14 and 16 with a few 12s and 18s so I figured to go one size bigger. What would you buy? A saddle or a cape. I am not sure becuase I don't wanna have extra hackles that are either too big or too small. BTW I am thinking of buying a 1/2 Gold saddle if the saddle is the right choice...is this a good idea?
