Grade 1 - the highest quality. This grade will tie the widest range of sizes and the greatest number of flies. Typically, these capes will tie from size 2 to size 30.

Grade 2 - a great value. This grade will tie down to the smaller sizes, but will not tie as many as the grade 1. The majority of the feathers on these capes will tie in the 12 to 18 size range.

Grade 3 - an exceptional value. This grade will tie a wide range of sizes, but will typically tie less of the smaller sizes and more of the larger sizes. This is a great way to get multiple colors of capes that are still of very high quality, but won't "break the bank."
