Gibbs has the diving Danny, and I have used Tatoo's 6" divers. The Tatoo's are a little heavier, and get down deeper. IMO

the deepest swimming metal lip ( wood plug) is the Conrad, Designed by Danny Pinkney, a close second is the slope head, a properly made slope ( also a product of Mr Pinkney) can reach a depth of 8-10'... a bottle plug( intregal lip) also can get down as deep as 6-8'....

you make your own, or know someone willing to make one... or lastly pay big money ( if you can find one) to someone for a collectors item...

yea, that is a good read as well, those beat up 40's are like my favorite thing. i just hate all the rumors of don musso saying danny stole his ideas or those other ones of the stenciling of a danny in the guys tackle shop who was catching fish all day and invited those two back to see plug in shop. and one guy waits across street to call as the phone is in back of shop and guy in shop stencils it with pencil and marks the holes while owner is answering phone. wierd but can see that stuff going off.
