Tungsten Jigs


What is the difference between lead and tungsten jigs?

Lead is less dense than tungsten and can be easily cut or marked. Tungsten is about 41% denser than lead, and is hard enough to require a diamond blade to cut.  By being harder than lead means it is better at helping you feel the bottom composition and structure with your jig/sinker.

Are tungsten jigs more expensive than lead Jigs. 

Yes.  This is due to tungsten jigs being made with machinery. The weight portion of a tungsten jig has to be soldered/welded/epoxied to the hook.  It requires special machines to form/cut the tungsten prior to it being attached to the hook by another process.    Lead jigs are made by pouring liquid lead into a jig mold, thus forming the jig.

What if I don’t see a product that I want?  Can you make what I need?

Please contact us as we have new jigs molds arriving at regular intervals.  If we don’t have it in stock, we can order it in and fulfill your order.

What is the difference between synthetic bucktail and real bucktail?

Real Bucktail is real deer hair from the tail of a deer.  The fur is painted in numerous colours and shades.  Synthetic bucktail is basically a plastic material shaped like individual bucktail hairs. It is a little more firm that the real bucktail, but doesn’t loose its colour as quickly bucktail.  This comes in several different colours and shades. 


What is Marabou?

Marabou is made from the feathers of a turkey.  It is soft and pliable.  Marabou tied to a jig is one of the most versatile fishing lures ever created.  Marabou is unique  it has a breathing motion when appearing stationary in the water. There is no other material that can be made to appear as “alive” in the water as marabou.  Any fish that feeds on insects, crustaceans, or minnows will strike a marabou jig.  These jigs are really good for crappie, perch, and sunfish and every species of trout and salmon.   It also works well for bass, walleye and other freshwater species.


​How do I care for my Marabou jigs after using them?

Its recommended that once the jig has been removed from your line, that it be placed in the sun and allowed to dry.  Once dried , gently ruffle the feathers to bring back the fluffy look to the jig.  Avoid just throwing it back in your tackle box as this could effect the action of the feathers over time.

​What is skirting?  What is the difference between silicone and rubber skirting?

Skirting is made with either 100% silicone and/or 100% rubber materials.   When attached to a jig or spinner is meant to mimic bait fish such as a crayfish, bluegill, shad, etc.  The action of the skirting is is life like when the jig is jerked, and falls,  This is dependent on the type of jig head that the skirting is attached to.
