I can only help you on the weight placements...

popper/chugger usually between the mouth and 1st hookhanger

Pencil (zara type) towards or as close to the rear as posible

Note: both placements above are on the underside of the lure!

High rollers are tricky...they actually have the rear hook hanger screw holding a metal bead there for the weight...I personally haven't found a metal bead with the right width hole to get a 1" s.s. screweye through it...

Take a correct size brass bead and clamp it well and drill the hole with a dremel . I made a bunch this way .
