Soobz 542 Posted October 6, 2022 Report Share Posted October 6, 2022 I was always a user of cheaper jigs. But over time I've bought a few better ones just to see if I was missing something. Apart from build quality, the expensive ones do swim a bit better and don't get snagged as much as they are better balanced. Then I thought I'd look closer at the barbs. I'll let you decide from the pics below. All are the same magnification 132x, some focussed a bit better than others, and some measuring lines just for a bit of reference. First up, Duel Dartmaster EZ-Q Search #3.0 Next is Shimano Flash Boost (poor focus sorry) Then for a bit of difference, a Ebay cheapie Daiwa - the one with a bit of opal in the back Neptune Tackle cheapie - well used I think Aliexpress real fish type Aliexpress bibbed minnow swim type, pointy but soft steel (next 2 pics) We get screwed in Australia with jig prices, very tempting to go cheap, but if you do they will likely need a touch up with a diamond file.
