I found one place that came up on google search, but it is 4 something a hank and I'm not paying that much!

Who has a source that is reasonable?

the fish won't care if you use Krystal Flash, but even that's getting expensive.

Does anyone know

I agree as well, problem is this stuff looks nothing like regular Krystal flash. It is way brighter and looks like it's blended with pure lightning...... the stuff is awesome but not 4 bucks a hank awesome.

I have been doing some searching and the best I can find it for is 4.99 some places are 5.10. I don't get it, it shouldn't be so dang expensive.

I wonder if chicks are going to start putting that in there hair like they are with our hackles.

Yes. If you wants to play, you gots to pay!

I am unfamiliar with the product. However, if the material is that good,
perhaps not as much of it is required per application which would compensate
somewhat for the price. Is that possible?
