Henry, the weight is on the front shank portion and not the hook shank. I am using a medium sized (35mm) shank by the company that makes the fish skulls. The next size up is 55mm. Peter, I am using the shanks not for the articulation but because it allows me to tie a longer squid. I normally tie articulated flies with a front hook and cut it off at the bend. The shank allows me to attach directly to the hook eye without using wire or dacron.
