I really like my Montana Black Gold Flashpoint. It has a protective cover on the fibers. And the cover turns purple in the bright sunlight to keep the pins from starbursting and covering the target. Even in the shade the pins are very bright but not too bright. It really helps when you are standing in the direct sunlight and the target is in the shade. All metal housing and very durable.
Good luck and keep us updated on which one you get.
