Hey, it's not that bad. Just keeping extra materials out so that the body doesn't taper down like that near the butt/tag. Been guilty of that several times. Forgot NOT to clip the excess. Those just get tossed into the flybox and get used in those "danger zones". LOL

Pretty good except for the lump at the butt. (Note: never say that to a woman) biggrin.gif

You could eliminate that by binding the tinsel down under the length of the shank and using thinner tinsel.
