I've had some that absolutely slayed and others that didnt swim right. I found them to be inconsistent but when they were right they were right.

Kev, I found the same at times.  

 

One thing that I learned was that John's smaller ones swim a lot better without a clip.  When I tied direct with a loop knot, they were much better.  Of course, YMMV.

Yep.  Skis in VT all winter, then comes to P-town for the summer to fish.

 

Am I the only one who's jealous???????

Aha, good to know. I'll give that a shot on one I picked up recently (haven't caught on it yet).

Inconsistent results with darters is the bain of  all darter builders especially if they are unweighted. It happens but I would not overlook a builders plug because he

makes a dud once in a while.
