I agree with the feathered hook. Been tying them since 1999. Went into business with Triton Mike Bucca to tie the Thad Specials line of crankbait hooks, but that is old school for me. I still use them every time I throw a CB and it works VERY WELL!!!!!!!! Sometimes I change them up a little bit, but the original is still the best. Used to tie them professionally, but no longer do that. Hope this helps. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.
