NickMcD63 Posted August 1, 2012 Share Posted August 1, 2012 Branden Schultz, who is a NorthStar contributor, had the opportunity to test and review our up coming Black Series jigs over the weekend. Here are a few pictures of the damage he was able to do and a review that Branden wrote up on his experience. Enjoy! "My first thought after seeing the new black series jig was being impressed with the overall thickness of the jig. The extra strands really fill out the jig and I like the bulkiness. The head had a nice matte finish and the hook was nice and sturdy. After I saw the jig in the water I knew it was a winner. The outside rubber skirting flared out while the inside silicone skirting staid nice and compact. This jig has a different look than any other I have seen and to say i was impressed is an understatement. It looks much more "alive" in the water and has great action. Another thing I noticed was the fall rate of this jig was slightly slower than a regular jig, like a premier, for example. The bulkiness really helps slow down the fall rate which is perfect for pitching around shallow cover. This way I can use a 1/2oz black series jig, which is easier to pitch than say a 3/8oz jig, but still have similar fall rates. This gives the fish more time to react to the lure as its coming down into the water column. Also the 1/2oz will fall better into cover and not get hung up as much since there is more weight to the jig. Giving the fish a slightly new look is a big bonus when fishing any water. With the black series you can use a well known big fish lure, the jig, with a new look that will tempt fish into biting. After fishing the black series extensively for a week I can tell you that this jig was getting bite when other jigs would not produce."
