I understand what the back blade is for I make a similar size glide for muskie and mine don't need that I've seen that on longer thinner like suick but if works catchem up. Use a solid strand wire over heavy mono and it will glide better

Just got these in the mail today, both sizes. Man they’re big, but they match the profile of a bunker perfectly.

 

they look really promising i think small is 3oz and the lrge is 5 oz

Screw eyes...

But a properly set screw eye isn’t going anywhere.  You never know for sure if it is though (if you didn’t build it).

I don't know what that means

Hook hanger. In wood plugs, if you see a swivel, it’s probably through wired. If the hook hanger is buried almost into the wood itself, it’s probably screwed in there like the screw eyes you used to use to lock a screen door. 
 

Plastic rarely have screw in hook hangers. Usually embedded in the plastic.

Thank you. I didn't know that.

Yeah, no worries! There’s a bit of a stigma against the screw eyes, but most realistic people can do unscientific tests, pulling by hand, and be reasonably reassured that the eye won’t pull out under the standard drag pressure. 
 

There’s also torque/leverage of the fish to consider but I don’t think that’s really connected to this conversation. X
