thanks

but I was to vague as to the description

these baits are big jigs but not made of metal

before I invest around $75 I'd like to know any experiences good or bad

they cost $5-$7 each

one has 1ft per 3 second fall-wareaglejigs

another has 1ft per 5.5 second fall-purepoisonjigs

and another about the same-customlures

I think you might be looking for the Zero Gravity Jig.

All I have is, and I quote, "Unbearably boring." They're not that super, in terms of catching fish. I can dropshot a Rage Craw with more effect than these jigs, and I have. I've got a few I'd send you FOC, you pay the shipping, actually, strike that, gimme your addy and I'll send them to you to be rid of them!

1/32 oz bitsy bugs are killer when nothing else is working, but they are hard to find and I go through so many!

I think the point is having a big profile with a low ROF.

Yup I've been wanting a few of these as well,I don't have any problems waiting for it to sink.....For me The strike is usually on the fall.This could be useful on days when a fast normal fall rate ain't working.

I have patience issues waiting for regular 1/4 and 3/8 ounce jigs to fall. I don't think I could stand fishing a weightless jig. That could drive me even more nuts than I already am.

^ Trust me it is tough, but somedays it is all that will work for me...If I don't get bit on the fall, I reel up.

Need links. Cant find what you are describing made by those manufacturers.

I had some full size jigs about 15-20 years ago that had plastic heads and a goofy plastic weedguard. They fell way too slow. I'm not patient enough for something that falls 1 foot in 3-5 seconds I guess.

check out this company called fish stalker, they have a swim jig with the profile of a 3/4 ounce jig, but it weighs just over 1/4 ounce.
