I prefer the fast sinker. However keep in mind that you really have to be aware of rocks and reefs as you reel back you lure on the end of your retrieve. A lot of sebiles get lost that way.

no doubt in my mind that a heavy loaded magic swimmer will swim right to my feet in a heavy current whereas the lighter you go they will lose there action further out.those with any expierence will fish what catches best for them not what others recommmend

I've had good luck with all of them. Floating, sinking, fast sinking. All depends on current. If there is room you can throw a floater along the rip rap without fear of snagging it.

For the Canal, with Stick Shadds, I prefer the slow sinking version.  It has better side to side action than the Fast sink version.  For Magic Swimmers, I also prefer the slow sinking.  When the bass are in on bait, they are looking around and up, and running a lure 2-3' iunder the surface results in explosive strikes.  For distance, with my rods I get just about as much distance with the slow sinking M.S. as with the Fast Sinking.  The sweet spot of most rods is in that range.  Not to mention the fact, that the few rods that I've seen explode were all with the heavier fast sinking lures.
