Jig it, spin it, buzz it, if it's got a wire or a lead head, it can and will be discussed in here.

I used the RT for a short run during last spring. Love the head desing, caught a mess of largies on them too, but I flat out straightened the hooks out after a hand full of fish. 20 lb Flouro and a flipping stick is too much for the RT series jigs. They have an RTX series with a stoughter hook, but by the time I got to that I just started making my own jigs. The Outkast head design is incredible for coming in and out of wood and limby structure without hanging up. If you aren't using heavy flipping rods or braid the RT series is a good choice, but you won't want them for heavy duty work. Hooks won't handle it. I use 3/8 oz and 1/2 oz for 75% of my day to day cover fishing.

The RTX Jigs are awesome. Tough chip proof paint, strong 30 degree hook, double-barb keeper, loud removable rattle. I have been fishing jigs for over 30 years and since trying out the RTX jig last season(2016), it has become the only flipping/pitching jig I use now. Great in both weeds and wood. Highly recommended.

Agree with Demoman on the RT. basically the same jig as the RTX but the RTX definitely has a much stronger hook.
