Screw lock problems

Recommended Posts

I have a bunch of shakeyheads, don't recall who makes them, but I hate em haha. Every time I catch a fish, I lose the worm and the scew lock, it breaks off from the jig head and takes the worm with it. Is this like an intrinsic property of shakeyheads? Should I try some new ones, or try something similar to the VMC Rugbyhead?

They do make nail type retainer shakey heads. Can't remember the brand, but the concept is designed to release the worm as soon as the fish strikes, thereby affording a better hookset.

I like useing the war eagle heads. Hookup rate is very good and they are not too expensive. I bought the big bite brand and the screw lock seems weak. Missed two fish back to back trying the big bite and put them away. I'm always looking for a good deal but I can't stand missing bites. Maybe it was me but I'll stick to the war eagles for now.
