I hope the pictures show how I shortened the tail, deepened the tail's curve from below, so the center line from line tie to rear hook hanger was also raised, and moved my 3 grams of ballast from behind the 3 gram belly hanger to in front of it.

The radical wobble is gone, and they X really hard.

I show the templates I used to make the original, and the slimmer tailed template I followed to correct the wobble.

The unfinished bait with no chin is a reminder to myself not to slap weeds off of my prototypes, before I have a chance to pass the screw eye the bill and into the chin, to reinforce it.
