Hello, I've sniffed around this site for some time. Lot's of good info to be found. Thanks........ I need some help on selecting a mold for tying bucktails. I cast barbed collar heads for plastic and collarless heads for tying marabou for crappie and steelhead and live bait. I want to cast some 1/8, 1/4 and 3/8 jigs for bucktails for walleye fishing. Do the Do-it ball collared jig molds simplify tying bucktails or could I just modify the barbed collar jig heads? Most bucktails I tie on collarless heads come out looking like a golfball on a tee...Thanks for the help

I've got a bunch of different Do It molds and the ball collar is fine for small bucktail jigs, in my opinion it's easier to tie on than the no collar heads. I tie hair on some heads that have barbed collars, but I always cut off the barb.

I also have some molds that have the ring & barb, which are nice for bucktails, plus they have the added advantage of the barb for holding plastic grubs & trailers.
