I tried all of the sizes, out of curiosity. Requires fast retrieve to get an erratic wobble. Worthless in the small sizes. The closest thing to the Magic Head is the Wigglefin Action Disc, which is threaded on the leader ahead of a dodger fly trolling rig.
Main objection is the price is way way too high for something that has to be tied into a fly. Fancy packaging cost more than the 6 measly discs you get. There is no reason they should cost more than beads. I am sure these could work if you get the right size disc on a proper fly. There is no adjustment other than to "magically" fold it back and you have a regular fly. Convertible feature is a plus, but there is no way to re-use the disc on another fly if it is a flop.
Natural action of soft material on flies at all speeds of retrieve is hard to top. If you still want a wobble fly get a two dollar bag of 8 or 10 mm cupped plastic sequins. Thread down the leader onto head of your streamer.
I tried these on some streamer flies and top water flis for pike fishing and the difference was amazing. The movement they created was very erratic and simulated an injured fish perfectly.
I can only imagine how greatr these would be for Peacock Bass fishing where the displacement of water and movement trigger these fish to strike.
