    Anybody order from these guys before? How is the quality of the jigs?

    The price is definitely right, if the quality is good I'll pick some up.

    I haven't ordered from the guys who are linked, but I have gotten chinese copies of the butterfly style verticle jigs. They work well, but the paint isn't that tough. But I'm prone to loosing jigs when drifting through the rocks, so the durability of the paint isn't always an issue, but cost is.

    I just wish they were heavier. I like to find a 16-20oz. jig.

    Paul, I spray my jigs with a clear coat hardner. It helps to keep the paint on. I can get 3-4 trips with them before I have to re coat them.

    This is a good idea Gray! I don't seem to lose much jigs if I rig it up with just one assist hook on top. More conventional style jigs with a "j" hook on the bottom I seem to lose with a lot higher frequency. Jigs like B2 squids I can't seem to keep long at all. Still have every one of the butterfly style jigs I bought this summer though

    Agree, heavier would be better but the 7.5 to 10oz are nice for rock fish if the current is tame.

    Nice looking and not too much $$$. I loose too many so always looking for replacements.

    Thanks for the link pot pusher.

    I loose allot fishing for lings.... P-line jig I love. Just wish it was a little heavier. I took the hook off and put on at the top. This helped me not to loose as many jigs.
    My buddy and I got a 24 Jig mold and now make jigs.This is saving us $$$$$$$ Went from $9 a jig to about $2 a jig... Easier to swallow when we loose them.

    Steve - They look like the dungeness stingers we use for rockfish.

    They have 500gr jigs which are 17 1/2 oz.

    I'll have to hit my jigs with clear coat this winter, thanks for the tip.
