This one is different. The tails are thick and dense unlike my typical buffalo floggers. This one is rough and will sting more than the usual buffalo flogger. White shows at the center of most tails as the hide was not 'shot through', the color couldn't penetrate to the middle of the hide. On a scale of 1 to 10 (Velvety Soft to Very Heavy Thud) this would be an 8+ with a good bit of sting.
