    I was wondering if anyone has used the nylon wheels and if they are any good? Also was wondering where to get the softest wire wheel and should it be brass or steel?

    The best tactic for fleshing wheel no matter what type of wheel is practice. It will tear them birds up in a hurry. Keep the skins flat as possible is what I found works best. I’ve tried a plastic wheel like your referring to years ago but didn’t seem to do the trick if I remember correctly. But like I was saying if it because your tearing your birds just keep practicing. Use diver ducks to get Rhythm then if you get the green heads your calling in which are very very sensitive you will only tear a few spots up lol.

  3. I have different wheels for different bird . Extra fine brass for teals and woodies. med brass for all other waterfowl. seems turkeys I could use an angle grinder and be ok. Lol
