Default Help Decide Hands for a Rally

This is what I bought. Clearly the bulbous arrow hands were ill-chosen.




The hands on the original prototype looked like this: straight and painted blue on the sides.



I settled on this. Plain straight hands. Better, but plain and a bit small for the dial.



I'm thinking of again replacing the hands, and I'd appreciate some input. Which of there three would best match the dial?

Keep the straight hands. As was pointed out earlier by another member, the hand tips of the originals just don't work. swap for hands like the original .... looks fantastic - I don't think they are too small .....

I agree and was going to get one of these myself but the size put me off.
