It amazes me that you just don't google it! The ned rig is a small finesse presentation consisting of a small mushroom jighead and a Z-Man Finesse TRD. There's several good videos on it, just do some searches.

A 3" Senko works too! As do the All Terrain mighty jigs. They're cheaper too. To bad the Senkos aren't! I've been dead sticking these on my power finesse Jackson wretched. Smallies are making me work!

Why google it? Is this forum not for asking questions?

The ned rig is a marketing ploy. Midwest finesse is an entire style of fishing, which uses different approaches, one being a round headed jig that stands straight up and a floating worm

Maybe it's a generational thing :). I always google stuff before I ask questions. If I can't find what I'm looking for, I take the time (and your time) to make a thread about it.

It's a marketing ploy until you've tried it. My buddy and I went out 2 Sundays ago and caught 148 bass in 7 hrs. That's a bass in the boat every 2.8 minutes....for 7 hrs straight.

I'm not denying that it catches fish... But the Shroomz TRD is marketing hype. "Have you tried the need rig?" Is on every ZMan package I see in my local shops. It can be any standing open hook jig head with any small floating worm is my point. And Midwest finesse is a lot deeper than that.

I hear ya Jakob. Usually when I hear the term marketing ploy, it's referring to a marketing scheme to get you to buy a product that doesn't work as well as it's hyped up to. But that Shroomz/TRD setup is just stupid effective. Any bait company is going to ride that term as long as they can to sell as much product as possible.

Absolutely.  You'll likely get much more info here than some random article found while searching on google.

Well googling often brings up past threads. I just find it's actually easier to google a simple question than to post a topic on it. But I definitely agree, you get a wealth of information on here.

I hardly think the success of a Ned Rig, whether branded that way or not could be considered a ploy of any kind. Now the Banjo Minnow? That's a ploy. 

 

The Ned Rig, while not created by ZMan, has just been capitalized by ZMan, they saw an apparent hole in the market that needed filled, provided a product based on their research and have tied up the market for it, until iCAST I presume, where everyone will probably introduce their version. But you can't deny the Shroomz and TRD aren't specifically, thus effectively designed for Ned Rigging.....it's a product that works, and MANY people will tell you that.

 

So it's definitely not a ploy

 

But about that Banjo Minnow....anyone killed it with those?
