Let me know your experiences with Molix jigs;
Weight: 1/4oz (7g) <> 3/8 (10,5g) <> 1/2 oz (14g)
Weight: 3/8 oz (10,5g) <> 1/2 oz (14g)
Weight: 1/20oz (1.5g ) <> 3/32oz (2.5g) <> 1/8oz (3.5g) <> 3/16oz (5 g)
Weight: 10,5 g – 3/8 oz <> 14 g – 1/2 oz
Weight: 3/4oz (21g) <> 1/2oz (14gr) <> (3/8oz) (10,5g) <> 5/16oz (8,75g) <> 1/4oz (7 g )
It would be good to hear feedback before I go and buy a load. Also, let me know what trailers work well with them.
I'm going with the following but interested to know your experiences too;
Kento 3/8oz - Plan to pair with the Molix SV Craw Magnum
MF - I couldn't get hold of these
Nano 6/32oz - I plan to pair with a Netbaits Tiny Paca Craw
Swim - I didn't like the colors so went with the Adcantage Swim
Tenax - 3/8oz I plan to pair with Jackall Sasuteki Craw
The Tenax and Kento are good though and suit a 3.5" to 3.75" size trailer. I'm looking forward to fishing these.

I've fished both and here are my thoughts on the Kento and Tenax:Jdmbassman wrote:I'm struggling to know when to use the Tenax and the Molix. It would be great if someone could let me know when to use one over the other, especially as they come in the same weights and sizes.
Kento: Excels at pitching and flipping. Line tie location allows you to drag it through hard structure such as logs and rocks without getting hung up. It does not dig in. When in its resting position either on the table or under water, it does not fall over. Hooks are decent enough and hasn't shown any rust. Weedguard is somewhat soft and thin on the 3/8 that I use, but for fishing hard cover, that is not an issue.
Tenax: Excels at casting and can also be used as a swim jig. I use this jig primarily around lily pads and submergent vegetation. I occasionally use it around wood and rocks, but it does not excel at it. I've lost a couple in there whereas I think if I had the Kento tied on it would have just went right over it. Its conical shape allows you to pull this jig through the thickest weeds without issues. Weedguard is also more stiff than the Kento, but not too stiff where you would need to thin it out.

Middle (1/2 Molix Tenax with 4" Yum Wooly Bug)
Right (3/4 Outkast RTX with 4' Pit Boss)
Thanks for words of wisdom, my basic knowledge thought it was the other way around with the Tenax better suited to flipping and pitching and the Kento would be the Casting jig.progressive816 wrote:I've fished both and here are my thoughts on the Kento and Tenax:Jdmbassman wrote:I'm struggling to know when to use the Tenax and the Molix.

In your experience, I much further can you cast the Tenax over the Kento ?
