I will examine the effectiveness and resilience to non perturbative effects of various top tagging procedures which make use of n-subjettiness, initially using Monte Carlo simulations. I will then present resummed calculations, at modified leading log accuracy, of the most effective variants of these taggers for both the signal and background. These calculations will then be used to understand the physics which drives these taggers, ultimately facilitating the simplification of them whilst improving the performance over a range of signal efficiencies.
