I love them smile

I have a couple of Lindy's kits and found them very cool while using them on Pool 2 earlier this spring.

Definitely a must have (or a must try) for anyone who uses jigs and switches them to critique their presentation. smile

Yep when it clicks in place it stays untill you remove it. Have used them on a couple trips and never lost a head yet.

I think they're a neat idea ...... I also think that retying your line every so often is a good idea, especially if you're using mono or something else that's susceptible to cuts, abrasions and weakening.

I figure that I can clip off an old jig and retie a new one in about 15 seconds. Besides if I spent anymore on jigs this year the budget director would put a hole in my boat.

I am all for retying your jigs, but when changing from a paddle tail to a ringworm then trying a minnow when you see fish down on the sonar, it is nice quickly change the jig head size to achieve the proper drop and color change for the presentation within seconds. This of course if no snags have been had in the last hour or so grin

This is the hook:

You slide the jig on while aligning the slot on the jig head with the eye on the hook:

You can see the plastic clips coming down the bore I/D of the jig head:

Push a little further and "click" into place:

As you can see the little plastic clips snap into place holding the jig head on the hook:

I have used them and has not had a jig head come off. To remove the head all it takes is a firm tug on the head while holding the hook.

I bought a pack this year to try. They work good, the only bummer is having a northern bite your jig off.
