Bead Diamond Treble Jigs
You can't beat this old style jig for action. I got some of the real heavy ones to get down deep for cod fishing off montauk... and of course they catch fish... only problem is after 2 trips the chrome has almost completely flaked off one of them and the other one has more rust on it than some diamond jigs I've had for over 15 years. The quality is beyond disappointing.

Must have for nighttime tuna
I agree with the other folks reviews, these jigs are popular on the Galveston fishing boats for tuna and are really a must have. They catch both yellowfin and blackfin when nothing else seems to do so. Be very careful when you purchase these and make sure the eyes are in tight and that there are no splits where the split ring connects to the body. I also replace both the split ring and the hook with stronger rings and hooks since I have seen other anglers lose big fish on the hooks that come with the lure. Its not the highest quality lure, but it works...

Mack Daddy Tuna Lure!!
I work on an offshore drilling rig and spend every night fishing for tuna, I've tried many different lures but nothing compares to a diamong jig when fishing for tuna, just be carefull when selecting the jig, if you look at the eye of the treble hook some of them are not completely welded and tend to come off with a big fish. Buying a stronger split-ring would be strongly recomended also. But all in all nothing compares to the action you get when using this simple lure.

I recently used this heavy jig on a cod trip out of MA. I bought this one because of the weight to get down fast. I did catch a cod or two on this jig before the weak split ring that this product came with broke. In addition, the metal that loops and connects to the split ring is also very weak as this also broke. I have read other reviews that mentioned changing the split ring right out of the package. I am returning this one. Fish on...
