I love these new poison swing tail jigs !  Perfect for a swing chatterbait !  I wanted to put the blade directly on the wire form but had to cut the wire form to fit on the blade.  I was worried the "cut" wire form would open up if hooked into a big bass. So I had to test it out....

Nice video, I noticed that the hook was in the process of straightening before the line broke, but sprang back into shape. Next question, how did you cut the wire? With wire snips?

Most hooks, especially non-Superline Hooks (I didn't watch the video) SHOULD flex some, without breaking, then returning to its shape after the force is taken off.  Nothing at all wrong with a hook flexing as long as it returns to its Original Shape after the flex.

I regularly pull on many of my hooks to check for Toughness, Hardness, Spring (returning to shape without distorting).  I use Light Wire and Medium Wire hooks.  I have applied some Major Hooksets on Fish AND Snags, and I have seen my Hooks' Qualities demonstrate Reliability in all their Functions.

Anyone have a mid season update?

I've been fishing the Poison Tail swing tail chatter baits I made and have had great success with 0 failures on the blade connection or hook connection. I have landed Northern Pike up to 12.5 lbs and a bunch of 4 to 4.5 lb smallmouth (on our Canada trip).

For trailers I've been doing really well with "The Ripper" swim bait and the Smallmouth really were partial to the 4" Split Tail trailer  http://store.do-itmolds.com/4-Split-Tail-3-cavity_p_231.html on both the Chatterbaits
 and the Casting jig (aka Grass Swim jig).

If you like Chatterbaits (if not,  you should!) The Poison Tail swing jig makes a good one!

After I posted this  I found a recent YouTube video by Skimpy on this combo! This will get you fired up!

I have had success with it as a jig, chatterbait , spinnerbait, and as a buzz bait. Best mold ever to me.
