Came back from the states with a few 750grm slow jigs and a few200grm for shallow stuff. Watch out bluenose in 350m, I have a jig for you now!

Do they glow in the dark like the Power Diamond Eye jigs do? Go Fish in Auckland used to stock them.

yep the guy says he spent extra to make sure the glow properties are excellent and the paint is extremely durable.
Tried to talk me into taking one in the closet but I am wise to those old tricks.…….
He had thousands made and then changed his mind so prices are very sharp. Very good hooks etc also.
I have always wanted to see if this would be a fun way for deep drop fishing without having to speed jig at that depth.
I got some 500grm off him before but didn't get out deep last summer.. they sure look like they will do the business!
I got the 200grm with drifting over shallower foul for kings in mind.
Will report back later in the season as to results..

Also the color of the body is a soft lumo yellow, not white as the picture would have you believe.

look good Garry, those jigs are perfect for bluenose and puka in deep water

What size are the hooks on the heavy one?

I'm interested in his contact details and prices if you wish to share. Pm me if you like. I have family in the US who will be visiting later this year.

Hooks are a dominator assist (mustad big game). Not sure on size but they are ample.

Fish addict. 750grms I paid $10.00 u.s which is stupid cheap. 500grms $8.00.
He's out of Florida and was taking a boat to mexico ahead of the hurricane so he might be busy for a bit.

Now I see that Kaveman has jigs up to 250 I would save weight and get them here, just buying the larger ones from Steven.
Also the big ones are competely perfect and flash as but the smaller ones are a different group and not as perfect in terms of construction. Realising the large ones are particularly high end manufacturer on the face of it (not tested by me).

Price for this info is one beer or equevalent per jig purchased!

P.S mention my name.
I don't know if he is giving me a price break because I am his kiwi contact so can't guarantee pricing etc.

He also has many thousand speed jigs which I am not needing as I got a whole box of Williams Benthos off a guy in the states a couple of years ago for $8.00 each rigged!
