Sinking, there is also a heavier red eye. I find the 2-3/8ths the best.

I'm with you, Gary, on this.  Cast like rockets and can be used as sub-surface swimmers.

Do you think the 3-3/4.  And the 3oz sinking I got is to heavy

I bought two super strikes sinking 6".  3-3/4.  And  3 well that sucks   I had a funny feeling I shoulda went with floating

Floating are nowhere near as versatile as the sinking ones.

For me it is. The 2-3/8 casts the best and is the most versatile for my style of fishing. Reel faster, it pops on the surface, reel slower it swims like a metal lip. The heavies are fine but don't pop as easy and don't cast any further. Your results may differ.

That's actually the reason I went so heavey is that I figured I could get more yardage.

Do you feel like your getting any more distance? I didn't think so. :shrug:

Paired with the right rod, I definitely prefer the largest and heaviest size. On my lamiglass rated from 2-6 oz, it loads up and sends perfectly with my normal casting style, definitely further than the floaters. If I were using my 1-3 oz 11’, I would have to totally change my casting style to achieve the same result, but I wouldn’t fish the ccc with that rod anyway. They’re easy to swim, holds its action in heavy current, but takes some getting used to to achieve whatever desired popping cadence that you want.
