The more research I do on this sugiya, the more pilpul I see the Murex Trunculus supporters need to do. It seems as if there answers require a lot of "lumdish" answers in order to "shtem" with the pashut pshat

Here's a few examples that I can't accept any of their forced answers... The snail is not a "Dag" but rather a "Sheretz HaYam" The snail does not resemble the ocean in any way, rather it resembles the sand. (Same for its color)

Does anyone know any recognized modern day poskim that say the Radyners rebbe cuttle fish is a better candidate than the Murex?

    In my opinion raising your particular concerns distracts and detracts from the question at hand; 'Which modern day poskim prefer the Cuttle fish techelet over the Murex Truncuclus?'

  • It's hard to imagine anyone thinking the cuttlefish is relevant, given that it doesn't produce anything unique that makes a colored dye.

  • Are you willing to accept the current Radziner Poskim as answers or are you looking specifically for Poskim outside of Radzin? Please edit to clarify.
