Unpopular/Underutilized Morphs

I don’t have much but I’m lightly working Harlequin. Also HGW, GS & Mystic in the next couple seasons or so. I like seeing people work the morphs less worked.
Everyone jumps on the major projects everyone else is working, making the same stuff. I understand popularity makes a difference in sales and demand, but I like to feed my curiosity and experiment.

Champagne is definitely underutilized and not a lot of people work with it. Maybe it is because it can be tricky to identify their combos sometimes, but they can still make awesome looking snakes. I want to see what acid does to champagne one day.

It’s a few years down the road, but I have a male Bongo Butter YB to pair with my Mahogany Lesser. Also looking to pair the Bongo Butter YB with my Pastel Specter Spark to see what pops out…

It’s also a pattern reducer.

I feel like Leopard is another under appreciated morph. Perhaps try to make a Leo Paint in the future?

Thanks so much for clarifying!

Personally I think HGW and Trick are my top 2. I have a male Fuego I’m hoping to mix with some females next year.

It looks like everyone is on albino and lavender albino pieds these days, but I’m very curious what candy/toffee, candino/toffino can do to pied but can not find more than one example online.

I agree on bongo and puzzle.

The orange really looks nice with the pied. I saw them on Markus Jane’s page. Was looking for a proven breeder female for this comming season. My pastel enchi is big enough but want to give the other potential girl some extra time and think it’s good to have a second girl ready. Saw a nice toffino female for a reasonable price but when I wanted to react the ad was removed before I could. But it really got me curious since I really like pied , and who doesn’t like pied ::slight_smile:

Piebald is a amazing gene, there are only very few combos I don’t like… I can’t even think of any of the top of my head :joy:.

And the more female you have the better, don’t rush though, keep your eyes open for that perfect girl and you will thank yourself in the long run :blush:

I am slowly adding to my collection some of these underutilized morphs. I have been adding Sentinel, Rainbow, Arroyo, and Toffee over the past couple years knowing that these genes have great potential. I’ve loved GStripe and Hypo for a long time and it’s nice to see these genes picking up again (especially since I have so many in my collection :wink: ). Want to add HRA/RA, Special, and Black Head in the near future. These are a few I believe are not necessarily unpopular but definitely underutilized.

@dragonsrahc If you like HRA, look into Lace Black Back. Many think it’s the same gene, but I think LBB is a little different yet still allelic to the same complex.
Some are less expensive and it’s even less worked with than HRA.

I think KRG has alot of untapped potential, and is over looked in my opinion.

I always had a hunch Kalabash was allelic with Jolliff Tiger. They both share a lot of similarities. Be interesting to see what would happen when someone paired those 2 genes together, as I believe they’ve never been mixed in with each other.

I have had the thought cross my mind a few times about adding KRG into my Tigers. I see it making a extreme pattern reduced animal.

I think it would too. It could have a similar look to a super blade when put together. And Id assume with both KRG and Tiger being color enhancing genes, you’d almost get a bright muddy looking animal. Be cool to see what they do together.
