I like the Gambler Giggy Head and the spot remover, but I think as long as you buy one from a reputable company it'll do the trick.

Spot removers have my vote, they're the best.

Almost any standup jig head can be used for the "shakey head" technique and 'Spot Removers" are excellent! JMHO

IMO, it's a matter of semantics. If I use a jighead with a finesse worm, and shake that bad boy, I call that jighead a shakey head...even though that's wrong apparently  :)

So then I should be ok using the spot removers over any other shakey head jig? I too was looking to purchase shakey head jigs.

I don't know about anyone else, but I found that it was difficult to get a SK 3x plastic onto a screw-type bait keeper. Either way, if you are fishing rocks, try out some football head designs.

A "standup jig" with a flattened head is not necessary with a Strike King 3x Finesse Worm,

because they stand vertically upright not matter what jig is used.

The traditional "ballhead shaky jig" isn't needed either,

because the vertically erect tail of the 3x worm offers plenty of shake.

Instead I'd be looking for a 1/8 oz jig that provides a large, strong, round-bend hook (a tall order).

The Bagley 1/8oz Shaky Head uses a small rubbery 2/0 Hook (avoid).

The Tru-Tungsten Weed Wacker isn't bad, but the hook is 2/0, a bit rubbery and doesn't have a round-bend (LOP bend).

The Luck "E" Strike Perfect Worm Rig uses a long rubbery 2/0 hook and the long shank doesn't leave enough free worm tail.

The Picasso Shakedown Jighead is a tough little jig but unfortunately the tiny spring-retainer is not suitable for 3x plastic!

The jig I'm currently using for Strike King 3x worms is the Slider 1/8oz Spider Classic Head (SPCH8B-U) which uses a 3/0 hook.

I buy them direct from Charlie Brewer's Slider Company, but their website is a mess so the model numbers is important.

Hello Everyone. I know I havent been here in a long time but we have been very busy. First I would like to thank everyone for their continued support of Megastrike Fishing Products. Now I would like to say that the New Shak-E2 Heads are now available at fine tackle shops around the country. These newly designed heads have been the talk of every show we demonstrated them at this new season.We were the talk of the Henry's Show(who are the largest fishing tackle distributors in the country) as well as the Fred Hall Show in Ca. Tackle Tour (www.tackletour.com) wrote us up as best new product in the show. They have pics on their website. When we were doing some filming with some "shakey heads" last summer.We really didnt notice anything spectacular about the heads themselves. It was more of a "technique" rather than the head. The only real component difference was the 60 or 90 degree bend in the hook eye placement to give the bait a horizontal presentaion while swimming or jigging. When the bait was dragged along the bottom, contrary to what we preceive ,the baits never stand up .They rolled on their sides and layed there .When we were filming-the baits that stood upright,with the tails or claws upright got bite more often.The new shak-E2 Heads are very unique in design. While swimming a bait-the fulcrum acts like a crankbait lip giving the bait a lot of vibration.The bend in the eye location gives the bait a horizontal presentation while swimming or jigging.The New shak-E2 Head gives you two options to rig the bait -either weedless or exposed hook for open water situations. The beauty of it lies in the fulcrum system.No matter how the bait hits the bottom-it will land in the upright position every time. When you drag the bait along the bottom. It will roll foward to the upright position every time(unless you put a huge bait on the back).It has a football head in front to give it stability from rolling on its side. The eye is recessed to deter snags.It comes in sizes from 3/16 to 1/2 oz. The head is so universal it can be used for flipping mats of grass ,skipping docks,pitching laydowns and brush piles. There is no longer a need to use a separate weight and hook. It is all self contained.It truely is one of the most unique and universal heads ever created. Here are some pics-just click on the Shak-E2 line and view the pictures. You can get close up shots by downloading the 300 DPI images. Thanks again for your time. Bobby@MegaStrike PS They retail for $4.95 a pk of 4. http://lineart.redshad.com/
