    Which fish would you take to a Koi Show?

    Given you had one fish to take to a koi show out of these three, which would be your pick as ready to show? Remember pick one...Let's just say these three fish have won major awards in Japan, so your pick is as good as anyone else's.

    Interesting pick, we tend not to see alot of high quality "Old" style Showas at shows nowadays. This one can compete with Kindai anyday.

    I'm with JN. That is a wonderful old style Showa in my book. Great head, body, color quality, and powerful pattern. C has a great head and body, but the pattern looks weak by comparison, and the Sanke's body just doesn't quite measure up to either one of the showa.
    Having said all that, I'd be excited to have any of them

    If I was to only pick one

    I would go with C. I am partial to the kindai paterning. But A is a really really nice fish. B just doesn't seem to measure up in comparison.

    Technically C is not really a Kindai showa. Less sumi does not make it Kindai. True Kindai, from my understanding has a lot of Shiroji and very little sumi and hi.
