    Had been looking for these for awhile now and they work very well. Tying for a trip to Canada later next month, but going to try out some at Lower Mountain Fork in Oklahoma.

    An interesting product, but not really a new idea. As another reviewer suggested, be sure to pair the shank with a straight eye hook that has a fairly large eye. I use a TMC 8089 or a Gamakatsu stinger.

    be careful of the hooks you use with this - 2/8/2012

    I've been looking for something like this since I 1st sw articulated patterns. Good product, but some caveats: 1. you may want the 35mm length. 20mm is pretty short, although it is still adding to overall hook length. 2. Choose your matching hook carefully. You almost certainly want a straight eye hook (not that common in streamer hooks), and not all eyes are big enough to swing freely. So check first befor you buy or tie . But, as I say, overall a good product.
