Rated 1 out of 5 by Crimson Stupid Product this was the most useless item i have ever bought, it ripped apart my bait putting it on, and is just to big February 6, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by jFever24 As expected. I wanted something to help keep topwater frogs, worms, and creature baits on the hook without tearing them up. This keeper performs as expected. Good product. July 14, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worley easy This solves a big problem, I was wearing my fingers out trying to make something like this. Makes regular jig heads work just like the expensive ones. April 10, 2011
Rated 1 out of 5 by Jig4Bass Corkscrew for soft plastic I am NOT a fan of the coil type keepers. While they do hold soft plastic well , they also can be difficult to insert and do too much damage to the bait after a strike if they pull free. BPS has an excellent swimbait hook (weight near bend of hook), but they use this keeper with it. I have replaced it with the following which keeps well enough without tearing up the bait. I use a small piece of 18 gauge copper wire which I put through the hook eye to form a "V" with the opening facing the hook point. Then, I bend one part of the "V" around the other, adding a few twists to make a "pin" about 5/8" in length. Sometimes the "pin" will pull free from the bait during hook set, but the hook stays firmly in place just like it was a straight shank and doesn't rip up the bait. November 17, 2010
