Yea, they do look similar, but they are tied differently. This thing move alot more water then the ep flies do, I cant wait to try these out at night during the bomber bite. You got to love ep flies though, I tie alot of them too.

Yes, all my striper rods are 9ft. What weight is the rod? I use 7-9wts on lanier, you can get away with a 6wt, just dont hook a biggin:bounce:
 
What kind of fiber are you usung to ge that volume?

It is all flash-n-slinky, the volume comes from the way you tie it, I kind of hard to explain. Ill take some pics next time I tie one.
