Has anyone tied or fished with this style of product? I would be curious to hear your impressions.

I bought some at the FF'ing Show in Raleigh, but haven't tied anything with them yet. I'll try this week and let you know.

Used a few of the small heads last year to make marabou streamers.

The flies looked good and the hooks rode barb-up due to the weighted head.

I cemented the heads on with 'Softec' from Orvis, after tying the body. I believe Shoe-Goo, Aqua Seal or even 5 min epoxy would also hold the heads firmly in place.

Don't have photos because I only had three heads and they're now either in a fishes mouth or on the lake bottom.
