Chompers Football Shaky Head Jigheads
These shakey heads i have used to fish 20-30' deep, and flip into shallow, woody cover. I have found these heads to be very flexible in the thick cover and very good for fishing the edges of thicker grass. It took me a while to begin to use the shakey heads but really like the Chomper model over the others. You will lose some but if you are observant in what you are bumping into you can keep from losing so many. The feel and hook set is great. In the deeper water a nice slow sweeping hook set works better.

Doesn't land on its head
I tried this jig out first in a 5-gal bucket with a roboworm. The jig repeatedly landed on its back. It looked as if the bait might be too heavy. I took the bait off and tried again. This time the jig landed on its head twice out of ten tries. I then dropped the jig--without line-- into the bucket. It landed upright three out of ten times. The only time I got anything different was when I dropped it on the floor from a distance of about four inches. That went five for ten. With any kind of plastic it either fell over backwards or to the side. Since the purpose of the jig is to provide an upright presentation, I have to give it a low score because I can't seem to make it perform the way the advertising states.

i am not the most experienced shakey head angler out there, but these are the best jigheads i have used so far. the screw lock does well holding your worm in place, the flat-bottomed head does a good job of keeping your bait vertical, and the mustad hooks are nice and sharp. i was a bit nervous of the square shaped head at first, but i haven't been snagged yet. this is a quality jighead that is worth the money.

I tried the Chompers shakey head jig with a Berkley gulp power nightcrawler. The results were great. The jig hooked fish very well and did stand upright with the plastic in place. The only very minor issue I had is that weeds tend to collect at the eye of the hook when an errant cast got into the weed line. I will be ordering more of the jigs soon.
