Standup Jig Mold Modification

Recommended Posts

I received a Do-it SUB-5 style (horizontal eye stand-up head) mold as part of a lot of molds (and I'm not sure what to do with it... ) Anyone have any clever ways to use this? It might make an ok bladed jig as is, or maybe a swim jig if a fiber guard is added? Any thoughts?

 

Thanks!

More of a walleye head than a bass head imo. Might be able to add a screwlock and make an interesting standup style shakyhead?

 

If it were me, I'd sell it instead of modifying and potentially messing it up.

It is a walleye jig head which is used with a grub trailer. You cannot add a weedguard, as there is no room at the top, because the hook shank runs along the top side of the jig head. Also the hook that is used in that mold is more of an aberdeen style hook which is much thinner. If it were me and I didn't have a use for it, I would sell it as well as mentioned above.

I have some jigs poured from that mold and I use them for tubes.  If you carefully force one into a slightly too-small tube it makes the head fattenup like a goby and gives it a bit of a glide on the fall.
