Charlie Brewer's Slider Heads - Spider
awesome jig head
great jighead. i have used them for a couple of years. i use them for texas rigging a 7" powerworm for farm ponds. i use it 1/16 oz for that application because it gives you a little more weight than riggiing wieghtless but you can fish in and on top of the moss without getting all the junk caught on your worm. i also use it to fish streams and creeks with tiny brush hogs for smallmouths(1/16oz or 1/8oz) . the only thing that is bad about it is that it is light wire and tends to bend fairly easy.

Won't Hold Big Fish
I am a great fan of Slider jigheads, but not in this hook weight. It is much too thin to hold big fish. The hook will straighten every time.
Go with the Pro Series. The hook is thicker, sturdier, and comes in weights that can still be used for finesse techniques.
If you plan to catch nothing but smaller crappie and bluegills, this will work fine. But, don't plan on landing anything over a pound.

I LOVE this jighead! It works great with the slider worms and the slider grubs. I swim a slider grub on these jigheads in clear water and the rig actually has a wobble to it. I rig them on worms and its the most natural presentation for negative fish in ultra clear to stained water. Do yourself a favor, and buy the 20 pack in every size!! You'll be glad you did!!

Spider head change
I have used these for many years but not happy with the recent change in the head weight. The new head design is larger for each size (1/16, 1/8, 3/16, 1/4).
The 1/8 is now larger (heavier) than the 3/16 used to be so be very careful how you order. Also less room at the top of the hook to secure the head of a worm or grub. This used to be 5 stars for me.
