x2, both are well-made and catch fish consistently for me. Of course, having a friend hand-tie them with wire is a cool thing, too. ;)

Lunker Lure Triple Rattleback and the Profound Outdoors Kelly Jordan jigs have been producers for me over the years. The Profound Outdoors jigs have a very stout hook that sticks em good.

Dirty jigs and Kietech take up most of my jig space in my tackle box. Problem is, I don't fish jigs in general a lot. :roll:

I tie my own with living rubber, and I get a top quality custom jig just how I like it for less than $2.50

i have 2 jigs that i use depending on where i'k fishing. if it's in my area (ne arkansas) it's a brush jig. i use 3/8oz with a finesse/spider skirt, and 1/2oz with a full skirt. if i'm fishing ozark lakes, i use the jewel ballhead in either 5/16 or 7/16. they seem to work for me better than a football jig in rock.

i get the brush jigs from a couple of different places. 1 is with a stout hook, a place called table rock tackle. i think the painted heads are a little over a buck a pc. cadman on this board also pours me a light wire version for winter time where i cast more than pitch

i use o rings for the skirts, then take some small diameter braid and tie off with a uni knot where i would like the skirt to flare more. the brush jig really makes an incredible looking finesse jig

My favorite full size bass jig is the War Eagle flipping jig. Favorite Swim Jig are assembled by me from Boss heads and dirty jigs skirts, favorite small jig is the Bitsy Flip, and favorite finesse jigs are Jewell Spider, Santone texas finnesse, and War Eagle heavy Finesse.

These are all time tested by me, and are always consistent in their build, quality hooks, and all have excellent hook up ratios.

One thing I do to the Bitsy Flip is I tie the skirts on with wire when I get them. They get tons of bites. Since I started tying with wire I have some jigs that have caught 30-40 fish. They look rough but are still catching.

X2 on the Bitsy Bug jigs. I tie on the skirts with wire, as well. I have some that are beat up bad, with most of the paint missing from the heads, but still catch fish. A hand file is in order to keep the hooks sharp after a few fish, though.

Anyone that fishes grass lakes, you need to check out the Nichols JT's Grass Wizard jigs. They come through weeds about as well as a texas rig. I was really impressed with them last year. They also catch bigger fish on average vs the texas rig.
