as of right now i still buy some micro fibbetts to use as fins when i need specific colors. however, hobby lobby sells paintbrushes (white) that are nylon and practically the same thing as micro fibetts... for about a 20th the cost in comparison.
has anyone tried painting these fibers? what about dyeing?
any info appreciated

The paint brushes have worked well for me and the best thing for color is markers, there may be something a lot better but those are the best I have tried so far.

thanks, thats a good idea! never made the connection (especially since my multi colored sharpies are in the same drawer as my fibetts!).

I hit the Hobby Loby and bought various brushes and just was not satisfied with the results. I tried various dying methods for nylon and markers and jus wasn't happy with the results. It just wasn't permanent or vibrant enough. Of course the selection at Sportsman's Authority is limited but superior as far as I am concerned. I just ended up ordering online and picked up around 10 colors for use.
