 I was sent these shanks the other day to try out, the new Senyo's articulated shank. have to say really like these, the ones i had were size 1" inch long. and come in three colors i am waiting for the the size 40mm to come. i am sure these are going to be my new go to for waddington style flies, being a single shank they are lighter.
