I'm gunna put the cat in the canary cage here crazysmilie
I have a red double signature lure that I bought as a Skink, due to the tail eye being up on the spine not straight out of the tail.
Now I have recieved a smaller Skink from Mike bowsmilie and it has the tail eye straight out the bum and the head is much more pronounced than my original skink...
does that mean the double signature is more likely to be a Water Dragon ???
Here they are together with measurements.

Both Skinks ,my large three trebled Skink has the eyelet up on the spine as well.The tail turned down is what sets them apart
and to a lesser degree they tend to be more curvier although there are exceptions to that as your double sgnature one shows some are straighter then others.

Tone, no idea, have never swum it, but maybe we can do that at Rob's place one day thumbsupsmilie I think the weight of the 2 sets of hardware under would stabilise it a bit.

Cheers Brad
