Inspired by Brandon Nam. Might look nice but wait until you try to cast it, hence the name.

Cause it's too light? Or just catches in the air?

Too much wing air resistance. I can use a "pocket water" taper (6ft 4x) to make the cast but the wings spin the leader badly. Tied another version using poly wings tied very sparsely. Worked much better.

I think perhaps it's the double wing shaped like an X that's the problem. I didn't expect all the trouble I had since I've used single foam wings of fair size on spinners such as Green Drakes. Not saying there isn't "spin" but at least I can cast.
