Tufts are typically suitable for showing large to medium size flow field structures, depending on size of the tufts relative to the model. The easy installation also makes it a useful "quick-and-dirty" tool. Unlike the sublimation methods, tufts stay constantly active and is therefore suitable for wide slow sweeps, studying for example the conditions for stall.
