Where everyone is getting off track here is, that the number one use for this product is to stretch the cape for easy installation onto the forms. All skin has an elasticity to it and this will return to it's original size. IF you choose you can make it larger for larger forms. It was developed to make your job easier.....

We know what it is and don't need a sales pitch.... My tanned capes have great stretch and areusually larger than they are when they come off the deer. There is no need to make a 23 inch neck on a 130" deerto a 25"+ or like in the video a 20.5" neck of a 2 1/2 year old buck to a 24" neck (even though those aren't even the same capes ). Just looks stupid and lets not get into potential hair pattern problems. If everything is done properly there is no need to stretch anything more than already is. Also like stated before guys have been making their own for years. WCL

my taxi doesn't use a stretcher to enlarge a cape ,he puts a cape on the stretcher just before mounting just to losen it up a bit.

I understood that. Just saying to the sales man that the video is rediculous showing you can make capes so much bigger. WCL

Sorry about the lame video.

About 15 Cape Snakes sold in April, I was hoping to here a testimony regarding someone who purchased one. Good or bad, how about some input!
