OEM style where eyes have either fallen out or no eyes to begin with . I just need a starting point for typical eye  size ...

The 3/8oz on the Swim Pro I use a lot is 5/32".

You'd have to be specific with the brand and model of the swim jig. The reason why is because the eye size isn't standard, Dirty Jigs makes a No-Jack and a California swim jig in 1/2oz, but each has a different size eye, the California uses a 3/16" while the No-Jack uses a 5/32". So tell me what brand and models and I will give you a size to try, or you can contact the manufacturer. Better yet, if you can read a tape measure you can measure the eye socket, if the socket is 3/16" get a 5/32", if is 1/4" then get the 3/16", and please do not take offense, I know a lot of guys that can't read a tape measure. I asked a friend to help me with my porch, I held the tape measure where I wanted the new wood to start and he gave me the measurement where the old wood ended, 10 feet 6" and 1 line under 1/2 ???????  He didn't know it was 7/16" or anything other than 1/4", 1/2", and 3/4" so when I asked him where 3/8" was on the tape he asked me how many lines is that, and so I spent the afternoon teaching him fractions and explaining the lines are 1/16" apart, it is good I didn't have him reading the bottom of the tape that has lines spaced at 1/32".

Buy a cheap caliper from Harbor Freight and measure as there is no standard size.

The cheaper imported 3D eyes work but the adhesive is really bad and will need glue to hold them in place. The best bet is to sped a little more and get WTP eyes, the adhesive is extremely good and will hold without glue or epoxy. Barlow's tackle, Jann's Netcraft, or Lure Parts Online all see the WTP brand eyes in all the different sizes.

the site and process are a bit dated here, but lisa and ed have a great selection, great prices, great service and shipped my order very quickly.  the eyes i received from them were a step up from the ones i had previously ordered off of amazon.
