    FINALLY!!!

    When I started on this project last Feb. if someone had told me all the trials and trib. I would have never believed them. From having to smuggle the hair into China to getting the right hooks over there, its been a learning experience to be sure.

    I feel the results are worth it. I am not 100% satisfied with the job the factory did with the hair but we can improve upon that and I am also offering the jigs with a lumo. skirt that is replaceable.

    These came out great - hair is how I wanted it

    what hook is being used in them? Will they hold up to big fish? Does the hook get bigger as they jig does.

    The big spros still have small hooks that would worry me on a big fish.

    These are Japanese hooks - black nickle - very good the best hook I thought I could find until I found something better at Icast. So now they are Japanese hooks next batch I think I'm going to use the new very sharp barbarian jig hook from VMC.

    Are they Spro jigs?

    No these are a new product that we designed, had the molds cut and are now making in China.

    Yes patterned after them and but I improved the angle of the eye hook slightly and made the body a little longer and more streamlined. Also I have sizes to kind of fill in around gaps in their line, so I have it in 3, 5, 8, 10 and 12 ounce sizes.

    Dealer and wholesale orders welcomed, I have 1,500 pcs of each size in stock spread over the five colors.
