Looks great! I’m a recovering over trimmer. I would run water over it in the sink to see what it looks like wet before I trimmed any more. It’s how I prevent myself from over trimming.

Thx was just doing that but good insight. Trimming is all about establishing reference points. For example dalburg diver as 3. It's tougher when your doing a round cylinder. The second one came out great. I brushed the fibers straight up and slowly turned fly as trimmed and formed the cone shape

The body is made from a dubbing brush using the stonfo dubbing machine . You lay stainless wire on the table place the fibers on top , which can be a mix of almost any fiber. Double waxed wire back over and twist combing a few times. You basically make a rope with your fibers and flash. Just palmer around hook and trim to desired shape
