Sky Hawk dorsal prefered?

I have been noticing the new big sky hawk dorsals on hms and I was wondering is this something judges prefer? Personally I think there weird.

I love em. I've always bred for skyhawk. It makes the fish look very balanced if their anal does a similar forward stretch.

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

I guess I like the more classic straight up and the anal straight down look. The sky hawk I think makes them look like dbt.

My avatar male had a skyhawk dorsal. The pic is a bad representation because it grew out a few months after the photo. But you can get the idea.

Hmm. I don't quite see it. Maybe because my eye for detail isn't the best. But how exactly is that different from a regular dorsal fin?

Skyhawk points forward and has more branching.

The fish at the top, except the MG, are all skyhawks.
