I am often confronted with the question, should I buy scaled or scaleless?

This is an example of one of my scaled versions of a Sanke against a scaleless version of a Sanke (Heisei Nishiki):

Doitsu or Wagoi ? Sanke

What do you prefer and why?

Altwee van die Sankes is vir my baie mooi. Ek verkies egter die doitsu want die lyne van die patrone op 'n doitsu vis is soveel skerper en in die algemeen is dit net mooier. Indien mens wil skou, moet mens egter eerder die Wagoi koop. Ek merk dat die Doitsu visse nerens kom by die koi skoue nie. Weet nie rerig waarom nie.

Ek koop egter vis wat die mooste is, nie om te skou nie.

I also think it is a personnel choice.
Wagoi for me please.

Hi Phillip

The koi shows are held according to ZNA rules. ZNA is the Japanses Koi Society. Duitsu koi's was created by cross breeding Wagoi Koi with german carp.

I read somewhere that the Japanese breeders find Duitsu koi vulgar and only breed them due to the international intrest in the variety.

If my memory serves...
The ZNA classifies ALL Doitsu koi either under kwarimono or Duitsu Goi, never mind what variety it is. So even if you have a stunning Duitsu Sanke it won't be allowed to compete agains wagoi sanke.

It is also much more of an accomplishment to grow a big wagoi koi because one missing or damage scale can rune the overall effect of the koi.

But you are right that the duitsu variaties appear brighter.
