    And yes, it IS all about the connections gents.
    You two being two and all,,,

    Knowing great eBay snipers and searchers allows those of us who aren't the thrill to work on projects we otherwise might not.
    At least that's my story...

    TGN doesn't carry a knot called 2 band.
    I'm guessing it's what they call finest badger.
    22mm Finest Badger knot
    Or

    Prices are fair enough compared to SM, but how are they in the den?

    I don't want to bash TGN, but the reason I started looking for another supplier was because the knots started showing up looking like they had massive bed Head. I even had one where the hair was not glued into the plug perpendicular to the bottom. The quality that Pixel and I were getting back in 2012/2013 was no longer there.

    He actually reached out to me and asked if I had noticed the quality of their knots diminishing. They definitely had.

    I should add, I did recently purchase some small knots from TGN. A grade A Silvertip, IIRC was an 18mm, and a finest (2 band) that was a 19mm. Both seemed very good. It's been a while since I've purchased a normal sized knot. Maybe they've fixed the issues???
