Production mold in the free style jigs
« on: 01/28/21 16:13 UTC »
Freestyle jig in the 1/32 or 1/16 then the 1/8 3/16 and 1/4 ounce pro style jig molds.  That would be so great. Or just combo 2 sizes in each one 4 to 3 cavities of each.

1/16, 1/8 & 1/4 or  1/8 1/4, 3/8 I bet would sell good to.

I like that idea! Just two weights per mold.  1/8, 1/16 for one. 1/4, 3/8 for another one. Maybe a small one for Tom, 1/24, 1/32. Shoot, I'd buy all three!

I was thinking about being able to use them as a head for the slick shiner or ripper baits  is why i said 1/2 ounce too so it would  be able  to be kept on bottom up to the mid 40's in depth in summer time around  here.

They already have the ballhead with keeper wire molds in the 1/32-1/24 and 1/16-3/32 that I use most of the time. Next up is the Teardrop with the wire keeper that gets used for somewhat larger baits when jigging walleyes. The 1/16 Freestyle head I use quite often when I can fish vertically or under a float and want a bit more profile from the side.

One mold that gets little notice or mention is the Wacky head with the #6 hook in 1/16 used with 2-1/2" to 3" Swim style baits with the hook's point buried in the body of the plastic. Cast into standing  weeds or over the tops of submerged weeds it offers a superb weedless presentation. Fished with a Crappie Fluke in the heat of summer when crappies seek shaded submerged wood or weed lines is my pet presentation.

The Freestyle is a great river jig as it helps reduce the drag in current, but one I'd like to see in a 1/2 ounce and 3/8 ounce multi cavity mold is the Finesse head. Rippers and the 2 larger Thump-Its fished vertically would be murder on walleyes given the tight balance that the heads would offer.

With the popularity of eyed jigs in saltwater and crappie fishing I do know that the 1/32 and 1/16 would be used greatly and in the salt a guy with 1/8 and 1/4 would love to have them.  That 3/8 ounce though is my secret weapon over reefs.
