I have heard good things about these jig bodies, and just purchased some.  I will be trying them the next time out, but wondering how many have had experience with them, especially for cold water (mid 40's).

They work great up near you, specifically Sacandaga. Got me a few decent 10 pound bags out of there late last September on super shallow jetties and rockpiles in less than 3' of water.

Hopefully, I'll get out next weekend to give them a shot, before switching over to focus on walleyes and muskies.  I also got some of their swing impacts.   Stinky stuff.

I've fished the Keitech spiders a few times, but to me, when they're on the spiders, a 4" will get the better bites.

Water is cooling quickly up here, and the fish have been sluggish with the turnover beginning in most areas......

Smallies have been deep (30+) and unpredictable.....
moving up and down from 20-30+ in days.

Stick with the swing impacts (dropshotted)........and if need be break out the hair jigs !!

Just my $1.380......... 8-)

Whatever you do, DO NOT put them in JJ's Magic. I made that mistake and all the tentacles fell off immediately. The body deteriorated shortly thereafter. :'(

As stated above, it's tuf to beat Balde baits and jigging spoons this time of year.
Keitech makes some great stuff! The baby spiders can be deadly in the heat of the summer. Don't over look their Swing Impact rigged on a Charlie Brewer's Slider head on 8-10# test fluoro. I prefer the 1/8oz, dead sticked and or barely crawled an inch at a time. It can be a deadly all year, but works extremely well in water temps in the 40-50 degree range as well. ;)

I did get some swing imacts but didn't get a chance to use them before the end of bass fishing for me.  On the list to try in the spring.   I will add slider heads to the rigging options.  Thx.
