Flysheets for High Withered Horses

Hey all
I generally prefer flysheets to flyspray because I'm so tired of having to reapply flyspray over and over and not getting the results I want. The only flyspray that seems to work decently well is Piranha, but even then it needs to be reapplied daily (not to mention one of my horses is allergic to it so it's not an option for him)
So I'm looking for flysheets for my two high-withered geldings. I've had my QH for a few years now, and we purchased him a nice Schneiders flysheet with a euro fit that goes partway up his mane, far past his withers, and it looks like it wouldn't give him any problems but it rubbed the entire end section off of his mane. I'm concerned about this happening to my new TB, and can't afford his mane to get messed up. I'm hoping to find something I know will work before letting that happen to him too.

Does anyone have any recommendations? Preferably affordable ones!


Thank you!

"TurtleNeck" makes a great flysheet as well; their design incorporates elastic into the neck, allowing greater flexion than any other fly sheet on the market.

I use the Rambo flysheet for my TB who has sharkfin withers and have had no problems. Also, the flysheet is very durable.

I'm going to do the same thing JDI did so you can get an idea.
