I have used averys grass and it lasted three hunts before it turned to crap. my hunting partner found the best raffia out there that they now make in 4 camo patterns. We use the winter wheat and it works great. it's been three years and we still haven't taken it off some of the blinds and it looks like new. We had have geese walk next to are blinds in past hunts with it. We used a snap lock things so we could take the raffia on and off easy when hunting corn. The site is www.jstern.com
and there really good at getting what you need. they will give you a sample of every color if you ask for free.
