Thick or thin deer belly hair for poppers?

Recommended Posts

I am new to tying deer hair poppers and was wondering what every one prefers. I have some hair that is really thick and some that is very fine. Which packs tighter? Which floats better?

 

I also need to ask when I see poppers at local shop the whole thing has a rubber feel to it, are they soaking it in flexament?

 

If it helps tying on 4/0 streamer hooks, hair is about 1 to 1 1/2" long. I wash hair with shampoo then run a good amount of conditioner in it then rinse and dry.

I might use both, coarse for the body and fine for tail/legs; the articles linked above should give you a general idea of hair selection and use.
