Larry brings up a heck of a good point, which few folks actually 'test' in moving water. Take a short rod (mono line is just fine) and a heavy lead shot of some sort to sink the thing. Just let out a few feet of line in current and see how it runs. Bad news is a lot of these things will actually 'spin,' for a lack of a better term, because they're 'off balance.'
Not a good thing!
If you gear fish, with 'plugs,' the first thing you're likely to read is 'test it in moving water and adjust the eye ring at the front to get 'it' to run true. No different than a 'junk on bunk' home tie.
