We first report on the detailed study of performance against robustness of two-prong substructure taggers, performed as a part of Les Houches 2017 Standard Model Working group report (arXiv:1803.07977 [hep-ph]). Then recent results on detector level smearing for jet substructure observables will be discussed, where we point out the shortcomings of the usual Delphes based approach, and suggest improvements.
