Durability is definitely a concern with marabou feathers. And, yes, I tie 2 or 3 every day to try to have a bunch to "sacrifice". That being said, I do lay in a bead of super glue before wrapping both the ice tub body and each marabou feather. I am sure the flies will still get shredded, but hopefully any one of the flies will produce a hit and that's usually satisfying enough for me.
