I'm throwing the Flash Mob Jr with 3" to 3 1/2" paddle tails and a 1/8 to 3/16 OZ jighead on each.

Wondered how this compares with what other guys are throwing. I do a SLOW reel with a constant
speed.

I never go above 1/8. It gets to heavy to cast for me if I go heavier.

I only use it to find fish though. Normally switch to a jerkbait or single large swimbait once I catch one on the A rig.

Also use a decent sized swivel to reduce line twist.

I throw either 1/4 or 1/8. I have gone up to 3/8 before when I am fishing super deep water, but it definitely wears you out a lot faster.
