Just wondering if anyone else pours their own jig heads? I was wondering what type of lead u guys use and how u paint the heads.

Also what type of jig heads do u pour, shakey heads, swim bait jig heads, arkey style, football heads?

What hooks do u use and just basicaly share info.


I'm looking into getting a few new molds so maybe some one has one to check out. Thumbs Up

Basser,

I use those exact jigheads (both molds), so I'd buy from you if the price was right.

E-Bay is also a good source for good lead. I had a friend that bought lead from an e-bay seller and the guy packed 20 lbs. of lead in a Priority Mail envelope so the shipping cost was under $4.
