custom handcrafted jigs
I ordered all of Dirty Jigs OD flipping, Skinny Bear Griz, and Dink's Flippin'-Pitchin jigs, looking for living rubber backed by a gammy hook.
Where to start:
Cheapest (of the three).
Hand Tied (with wire).
Awesome finish (paint/details).
True "heavy" gauge living rubber.
Wide stable head design great for skipping and standing up (of the three the head design easily "stood" at rest without tipping side to side pushing the hook side to side).
Nothing scientific, no financial interests, but couldn't be more happy. Scoured the web, and found the Rodstrainer FB page, and called looking for info on a 1/4oz option. I expected to get a VM or associate (anyone but Dink), but sure enough he picked up and we had a great convo and wouldn't hesitate to recommend rodstrainer tackle to anyone looking for a great jig at a great price supporting a seemingly great guy. Not to put down anyone else's product or efforts.
I will say that I placed a follow up order with Skinny Bear direct (June 7), and followed up on June 25 and haven't received as much as a peep. It's not my style to blast, but worth sharing my experience with the community here. They've lost one customer...
The Rodstrainer brand jigs are not available in very many places, but TW carries them.
I have also talked with and had e-mails with Dink Great knowledge and experience there.
