    Fortunately, we all differ in tastes. If we all liked the same koi, some would pay millions for a koi, and millions would end up with koi we don't really like

    Personal taste should not be part of judging, but its always part of selection!

    I agree. Theres a ton of male Koi that some people wouldnt buy just because they are males. We all have our favorite types & things that strike our eye.

    Pick one for best tategoi and pick one for best to show now.

    Have fun with this excercise.
    When is it time to reel everyone in?

    What do you mean by reel everyone in papabear? Where the pics are from is irrelevant to the exercise, and most of us here know where they came from.

    Looks like you got yourself a fairly nice sanke aquitori. Enjoy it.

    I didn't buy any of those Sankes. I cant really say where I got those pics because they dont advertise here...Anyways, this is probably one of the hardest judging excerises I have done because there is not one Sanke that stands out as far as for show.

    I was thinking (and hoping) that there were pics of these a year or two older floating around out there for us to see how well we all did with our tategoi prognostications. It's always fun when that happens you know This has been an interesting group to play with, that's for sure.

    Sanke

    My ranking is BDAEC. For show now, I will send in E. And future D might be the koi to watch.

    Reason for the ranking.
    B : it has better sumi quality and the shiroji is better too.
    D : lacking of sumi. Cannot tell where it is appearing. But body is better among the rest with wide month. Slightly short head compare to B.

    Reason why E is good for show now : 'finished' koi.

    Reason why D is future koi : Once the sumi come in at the right location, wow.. what to say..
