    My personnel preferance is either chenille ( the fluffy wool type material used in fly tying , can be sourced from most e-bay for about £2 ish for a metre for loads of very bright colours)

    Or

    Old cassette tape.

    Both are equally as good as the are pretty waterproof , more so the cassette tape, only draw back with tape it's a tad dark in colour.

    Hope this helps

    good old fashioned wool, with a little electrical tape round the end to stop fraying!

    it's not oversensitive and comes in loads of different colours for the fashion concious!

    it's also what aerodynamicists use on race cars in wind tunnels, odd but true!
