Good flies.Have only used the rainbow beaded buzzer (red/orange) because fish are very deep.One negative, the fly isn't varnished so doesn't stand up to a day's casting on a dam wall.

New to fly fishing - try these buzzers then - I am, and did, and haven't had a blank day yet!

Not busted a blank yet (ultimately a small Cat's Whisker managed that after an hour or two's testing with the buzzers), but I did return the parts of one fly after all I retrieved was the eye of the hook! Customer Services have taken the issue up quickly though and it's probably a one off. Had a smaller hook (size 12?) straighten on a 4lb tippet so strength of the smaller flies might be an issue (they are very thin but this seems to be a trade off against strength). Fishing New Zealand style might not be a good idea with the smaller versions.
The fly box also doesn't seal the compartments so from a quality point of view it only passes muster as a way of shipping the flies rather than presenting them. I transferred all of mine to a different fly box once I received them.
All of this doesn't mean I'm put off however, and I will be putting them through their paces on my next session. I still have high hopes!!!!
Overall I reserve judgement on their perfomance as it's too early to give real feedback but I can't fault Customer Services who responded well to my early comments. I will be back to the Essential Fly in the future for more flies.

Great looking buzzers , really slim & great service as well. Very difficult to tell the orange from the scarlet on the flies I received.
Watch the box as the compartments are not sealed tight to the lid and they all get mixed up when travelling.
