"They look great and easy to use but should ship with the darn eyes on them already."
Response from Orvis:By Orvis Customer Service TeamMarch 21, 2013
Thank you for the feedback regarding this product. The Fish Skulls come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors; for additional variety, the eyes are not affixed, allowing you to introduce yet another variable to the pattern. If, for this reason, you are not happy with the product, we will gladly exchange it or provide a refund. As always, we have a 100% satisfaction guarantee on everything

great product, flimsy packaging,

"Great streamer head. Have used for tying many nice flies.
ONLY ISSUE - and its not orvis' fault, but the manufacturer chooses to packages this in a this clear resealable poly film bag that DOES NOT HOLD up to more than 2 or 3 opens and closes. The sides seams ALWAYS split and heads fall out and get lost."

"The FishSkull product line is one of the best innovations in fly tying in the last several years. They are very easy to use and produce weighted flies with a very professional appearance. I am anxious to see more patterns developed using these heads."
