Trussing needles

I'm looking at adding a trussing needle to my stock of tools in the kitchen, but I'm finding that there are a couple variants. First there's the issue of whether it should be curved or straight. After that there's the issue of length -- which seem to be either 7.75 or 10 inches.

Anybody have any ideas or experience with trussing needles?

  1. I use a straight one that's about 8" long (so I guess the smaller of the two you're looking at). Works fine, except when trying to truss quail.
