Looking for something that is VERY similar to the DT6

I tried the 1/4 Oz bandits but the DT6 are 3/8 Oz and I am not sure that makes a difference but the DTC Loves the DT6 so much it’s like it was made for that bait. I’m just experimenting but thanks for the advice

Bagley Sunny B medium diver!!!! It dives to the same depth as a DT-6 which is one of my favorite cranks. For the last 3 years I've found myself using it more than the DT-6, it has a good wobble but its shape gives it a slightly tighter action and it has really been a fish catcher. Tennessee Shad, and chartreuse shad are the only colors you need but they have a different take on sexy shad, it is green and has been outstanding in clear water.
