    Showa is more on the old style side...Sumi is nice and heavy as well as beni...Conformation is okay, but my main concern it the belly is starting to get too big on the fish making the tail joint weak...

    You got a better pick of the Sanke pictured straight? Because based on the pic the head looks deformed...

    No, I don't.

    I pulled this from Toyoma website.

    I am thinking about making an offer for this goromo.

    Very simple, yet elegant I think

    Koiloco: If you have made up your mind to buy there, while figuring out which Goromo you like best, take a close look at the little 11" Matsunosuke female Sanke. The red in her left pec is a distraction at first, but it does balance the Hi on the shoulder. She might be very interesting to look at in person.
