[NAFEX] scion -- best length?

I've grafted many times with short little scions with one bud when
scions of a variety are in short supply,  Lately I got 11 trees out of
one 12 inch scion, It's better to have two buds on the scion in case one
breaks off.  I try to make my cut (both scion and rootstock) so I slice
through a bud where cambium tissue is thick. I think this increases my
takes. Lee Elliott, Apple Hill Orchard, Winchester, Illinois
