  1. Thanks for the info, I will check eBay.
  2. Don't know if there is a company that makes a 28 or 30 Degree lite wire O'Shaughnessy Hook, other than getting a custom one. I know that phenix uses one in their Vib Jig (it says mustad custom hook). If anyone knows of where to get something similar, any leads would help.
  3. @smalljaw Thank you for the in-depth response. I’m basically stuck in the same situation you are when it comes to hook choice because of large mouth/smallies. There is a couple lakes I fish and on any cast you could catch a large mouth/smallie. So, it kinda hard to say I’m going to target one or the other.
  4. @jigman @smalljaw thanks for the input put on hook size. 1/16 & 1/8 is for FF & 1/4oz would be for small hair jigs.
  5. Understandable, but I was looking for references because I don’t want to buy 10 different sizes hooks until I find thenone I like. I was just trying to get a good idea in size most people put in their hair jigs.
  6. What size hook are people using on their jig heads? 1/16 1/8 1/4 ETC........
  7. @Les Young Flag pins in my opinion are to thick for my liking, but do hold up. @Apdriver that’s the same exact wire I use now. Great wire for rigs. Just wanted to try out something new. If not I’ll stick with that wire because it hasn’t let me down.
  8. Link to the wire you use and any pictures of your rigs?
  9. Don’t know? Just a idea to make my rigs with some type of different wire. I’m not a fan of bright wire.
  10. Picasso lures uses piano wire. Their rigs hold up. Does anyone know what wire yum uses?
  11. I was wondering if anyone has used piano wire for their umbrella Rigs? Trying to figure out some decent piano wire to try out for my Rigs. I know “bigger” companies use this type of wire. Any Info would be help. -Thanks
  12. Dink master, What fluid bed do you use ? I've been looking/wanting to make one.
  13. Oh ok. Might want to Make your own. Maybe with lead tape? Customize them the way you like it. Tinker with it until you perfect it. Just a thought.
