Question Necks for flatwings

After seeing all of the flatwings being tied at the MSBA show and hearing of everyone's successes in fishing with them, I'd like to ask what the preferred grade neck is for these flies. I noticed that Metz necks were being used, but what grade does everyone generally use (1, 2, or 3)?

Thanks to Adrian for giving me a basic intro into the flatwing design, especially the "pillow". And thanks to those of you who respond to my inquiry. I hope to be giving some of these a try at the vise soon.
