Feather or bail snap? I don't think that is the question.
I use a plug reel most of the time I'm not flycasting. That has to fall into the feather school - and on some plugs I still get front hook wrapped.
It is especially bad on one new plug I have been using... a Rapala twichin mullet which came with single hooks. It is the worst for wrapping that I have ever used. So, it ain't about single vs. treble either.
I think any plug that flies head first through the air on the cast will have a tendency to wrap the front hook.
To that point, I bought a stupid expensive plug (I think Yo Zuri) simply because of looks (mulletl), color, and the fact it floated at rest. It has a prominent lip so I thought it would wiggle good and be a great lure for trolling as I paddle. I paid no attention to the fact that it has an internal weight that slides back and forth so it will cast further. When I do cast it, the weight shift makes the lure fly backwards through the air.
