So I did this thing with my diner shiner mold. What do you think?

The concept is okay, But the hook eye location on the head is very weed catching... So it wont be very "weedless"

Yeah I get that. Maybe I can try a regular EWG hook.

You would need to have an extension molded into the head or there wont be enough hook left to rig the plastic on.

The way I have it now will be okay under most conditions I think. The normal Diner Shiner is good but tends to snag a lot.
