Do you have a pic or drawing? Those are really small hooks for the head sizes, usually a small hook for a 1/4oz jig is a 1/0, on a 1/2oz jif a 3/0 would be considered small. You need tyo recheck the hook sizes because a 2 or 3 is what you find on 1/16 to maybe a 1/8oz.

I figured out the mold and it is a size 3 hook

Arkie jig with a ball collar with a 3/0 not a 3. I know that is what you meant because a size 2 is on a 1/32 oz jig a size 2/0 could go on any of the jigs you're looking for and so could a 3/0.

the mold that he used was a weedless bass style s mold, he used a 3 ot for all the sizes, 5/16 is the only weight that is meant to accept a 3/0 but he managed to use 3/0s for both the 7/16 9/16. Think I can do the same for my flipping mold? I managed to use a 5/0 for my 1/4 oz and 3/8

Most do-it molds you can either go up or down a size in hook depending on the mold, like I was saying to you when you said a size 2 or 3 hook, that is a lot different than a 2/0 or 3/0, I hate to be anal about things likje that but in the case of hook size there happens to be size 2 and 3 hooks in addition to 2/0 and 3/0. I make a light flipping jig that is 3/8oz, that is light for a flipping jig but I use a 5/0 hook in it even though the mold calls for a 3/0 to 4/0 hook but not all molds can do it and it also depends on the style hook. Most of my molds are modified to use bigger hooks if the mold can't accept them but you need to check the mold and hook size first. Go to tackle underground on the web, the guys there can usually tell you how big or small of a hook you can use in a particular mold and if you find cadman on this site he can help you with hook sizes for molds so you don't have to guess when planning on buying a mold.
