Yes! I also like to use those jigs under a bobber in the summer, not just through the ice.

Shad dart is a geart ice jig. It about the same except it has the angle on the front that give a different glide in the water. I also use ice jig's in the summer on pan fish.

It would be a great addition to the molds and would probably fly of the shelfs like the wax wiggler is.

We're talking a mold for lead or tin right? When people start with the mm lingo they are often referring to tungsten and I don't see a mold for that happening right away. But actually a lead mold in that shape might not be a bad one. Tin could be used to for an incredible slow drop rate.

Ide say it would have to be lead. I don't think anyone will ever have capabilities to melt tungsten at home. Something that gets down to a #10 and #12 jig hook Is what I'm looking for.

That would probably have to be a custom bent hook so the lead don't slide down. Or a live bait that has the barbs and a up turned eye if they make them in a #12.

There could be some real issues with design as well. The legal type.

A 3 to 7 mm Tungsten jig profile poured in lead would be GREAT. Including the same fine wire style hook the Tungsten heads use would put a mold like that over the top.  I am sure it's possible but would it be economically feasible to produce such a mold ?

I like the idea of a tiny jig just like the wacky jig. It would be a great ice jig and great in the summer casting for gills and crappies.

Or maybe a tiny Bat Jig. I love that jig for summer gills and crappies that are suspended. With the wire keeper if possible on some of the larger heads.
