    in my opinion sir why do you have to cross it when infact you can fght it as it is.besides sweaters are crosses and can fght even long or short knife.try it first, then observe what is lacking in them then thats the time you decide what to infuse

    Actually pure sweaters sulk in short knife. You need to cross them with kelso or hatch fowl. My personal opinion.

    Sulk = mentally start to loose interest in the fight, start to pout because things are not going his way... thinking about quiting.

    Re: Whats the best Sweater cross???

    the reason i ask about the cross is because ive seen pure sweaters win very quick in the LK, in two pittings the other rooster was gone, but in the short knife they tend to take a little longer to finish the fight. i think that sweaters need a cross to be as good in the sk as they are in the lk imo. thats why i ask

    There is only one cocker / breeder who won cocker of the year in the same year for both the short knife and long knife using the same sweater crosses. He is the best person to answer this question.... Carol NeSmith.

    i fought 2 CK x possum and 1 LDT boston RH x possum at tha stags.won very convincingly.
    fought 7 won 7 this year 1 hacfight(straight possum), 2 cocks(straight possum)"co-champ" and lately in paniqui tarlac march 21 4 cocks (pure possum) "co-champ".

    They can be fought crossed or pure.just take care of them from eggs to the pit , they will give you good results.

    possum x honey yu YLH
    possum x Circle L mclean hatch

    For long knife: sweater x roundhead or kelso or any fast accurate cutting lightfowls

    For short knife: sweater x mclean or albany or any game heavystrain fowls

    Of course, test the cross in the ring...if it nicks then continue the cross...no rule of thumbs here...what works for you may not work for others...just keep an open mind and experiment to your heart's desire, lastly, don't forget to listen to intuition coz it works like magic for some people.

    i am not surprised that your dink is missing speed...i'd rather have a accurate cutter than the speed of light and who need's a finishing if the shots are accurate...

    I JUST WATCHED TUKAAN LAST DAY, AND ACCORDING TO BOY DIAZ, PROBABLY ONE OF THE BEST CROSS FOR SWEATER IS THE KELSO. JUST AN INPUT, YOU MAY OR MAY NOT CONSIDER IT BECAUSE EVERYONE OF US HAS ITS OWN PREFERENCE.

    1/2 miner blue 1/2 Blackwater sweater should be a good cross and 1/2 penny hatch 1/2 dink fair sweater but it depends my favorite sweaters are blackwaters and Golden boy sweaters but I would stick with a Blackwater because that is proven big time in my eyes.
