i tried the tweezers, it worked ok for me, but its still twice as tedious as just pouring a jig without the wire, and with a plastisol bait the wire is completely not needed. loose wires dont bother me, they are just there to hold the bait in place anyways, and i dont sell the wire keeper jigs, way too much time per jig
Well, you have to do what works best for you, and the way that you use the jigs. I sell them and folks like the wire keeper, so I make them so the wire isn't loose, and even though it does take a little more time, I just price them accordingly, and no one has been complaining.
I also pour the Ponyhead jigs that have a lead barb, and some folks like them and some have asked if I make them with the wire keepers. No matter what you do, someone wants something different. I've never had any problems keeping a plastic bait on with the lead barb either.
