I believe the 4" swim shad is something like 7/8 oz and the 5" weighs 1-1/2 oz. They cast fairly well. The swim shads come pre-rigged with the lead head completely embedded inside the plastic body. They're both durable and cheap though.
I use a slow retrieve and twitch my rod every now and then to give it a light up and down jigging motion. Sometimes I just let it sit in the current, pull back, and let the current take it again.
