There are 4", 6" and 7" versions too, as well as some pro-senkos (thinner? I never bought them) and some fat senkos (I have a few packs of 3" fat senkos). Then there are swim senkos- basically a senko with a paddletail.

Here is the method to rig a wacky Senko from Ike on his DVD and at a seminar I attended.
Go your favorite hardware store and purchase the Gardner Bender 3/8-inch Polyolefin Heat Shrink Tubing in the electrical department. Purchase the smaller version for your finesse and trick worms.
You get three tubes in one pack.
Cut the tubing into 1/4 inch sections (or whatever length you want) and run your Senko or finesse worm through the cut section until...
1. The tubing is in the middle of the worm; or
2. The tubing is over the egg sack; or
3. The tubing is where you want to put it on the worm.
Then, place the tail of the Senko or finesse worm on a desk or some other object and hold it straight out so the tubing is exposed and there is nothing under it.
Using an "igniter" (the lighter you use to light bar-b-q coals) heat the tubing until it is snug against the worm. Be sure to turn the worm as you heat the tubing to get the entire tubing hot so it will shrink onto the worm's skin.
You could use a match or cigarette lighter but I burned my fingers using these heating methods.
Run your 1/0, 2/0, 3/0 or gold #1 hook under the tubing and above the worm's skin and you are ready to roll. The weedless hooks will allow you to fish the grass and other structure without snags.
You can also remove the worm easily and not damage it.
You may run your hook under a little of the skin but that should not be a problem.
You do not have to fish this rig weedless for it to work. Any size or style of hook will suffice.
You can catch a lot of fish on one worm with this set-up.

I do the same except I first put the o rings on a copper tube,drop the senko inside and then pop the oring on them.
yes yamasenko's are the real deal. Probably the best thing ive used i get about 7 lg mouth every time i go out with the 5" my best results come from smoke color with purple flake or pumpkinseed with chartruse flake, basically ive used most of the available colors in my area (nj) and have always had positive results. as for durability ill let you in on somewhat of a secret, go to home depot take your bag of senkos with you and find o-rings in the kitchen section, find an o-ring that fits snugly aroung your senko but not too tight, buy a pack of them. slide the o-ring onto the middle of the senko then using a weedless hook, hook it through underneath the o-ring wacky style and your good to go!!! i usually got through about 10 catches or more before it starts to get messed up.
