Daiwa has several versions of the sinking 5 minnow.
The Dr. Minnow comes in a 5S (3 grams) and a 5FS (fast sinking - 3.5 grams).
There is a jointed Dr. Minnow 5S (3 grams).
There is a Silver Creek Minnow 50S (4.5 grams).
There is a Wise Minnow 50S (5.2 grams).
There is a Wise MInnow 50HR (high response - 4 grams).
So far, I have used only the Dr. Minnow FS and the Silver Creek Minnow (plus the Dr. Minnow 5F (floating - 2.5 grams) and caught fish with all of them. I have not used them on particularly small streams, though.
