Depending on the kind of rattle you have, option #2 can be problematic. Specifically, if you have glass rattle, there's very little protection of the rattle. So, you end up with a heavily weighted fly that doesn't rattle b/c the rattle breaks and takes on water.

I've been leaning toward option#1 for the sake of protecting the rattle and for some designs, a taller profile.
