''Clan Chief ' Crippler
Dressing

.

One of the first in the series of 'Crippler Classics' - successful too. More Cripplers quickly followed. The red and yellow of the original Clan Chief's tail were switched to the shoulder hackles to tone down the boldness of the original a little and also to spread the red/yellow combo throughout the patern. Somewhat quieter than the original, but still bold.
