The 3 sunray variants I have had the most luck with.
White bellied sunray
Pu Mu
Fl. Chartreuse sunray
They are all counter weighted for better balance, I only use plastic tubes for hitching

Counter weight is probably not the right scientific term Rennie somewhere that terminology stuck in mind so always described it as that, counter balanced is more accurate, hidden under the front half is 0.5 grams of adhesive lead which experience has taught me is about right to balance a size 6 sawada on that length of tube, I like to balance my flies but cones dont look right on monkeys or sunrays and are vitually impossible to get as monkey hair is so hard it wont tie down small

I have always wondered about this but never been brave enough to ask.
