Chompers Stand-Up Jigheads
great jig head
I catch a lot of small mouth bass with this jig head, and a twin tailed grub. The hook is sharp, and the weed guard work good in cover.

Excellent Stand-up with added bonus
I bought my first pack of these a little over a year ago and I have since purchased several more. I generally fish these with Chompers twin tail grubs as I found them superior to Yamamoto. The colors are far better and the garlic scent is an added bonus. Unlike other stand up jigs, the weight to water resistance ratio on these are incredible. The rate of fall is slower, thus allowing better presentations. All three sizes fall vertically and make a perfect stand up landing due to the extra width on the head. For extremely inactive bass, I go 1/8 and it falls about 4 feet in 10 seconds, the 1/4 will make it to about 7 and the 3/8 will go about 10. Great hook up ratio and they work great in rock, wood, or vegetation. Since most bass hit jigs on the fall, more time in the strike zone is worth it alone. That slow fall allows you to really work laydowns, grass, floating weeds, shore lines and drop offs.

I purchased these stand-up jigheads, but I had to guesstimate how long and how big of a hook they had. When they arrived, I saw they really are just too long and the hook is too big. Yes, the jigs will work fine for long, big plastic baits like a three inch tube bait. But I bought the 1/16th and 1/8oz jigs to use with smaller minnow-like plastics. The jigs could be shortened up by at least 1/3 the length and could use a smaller hook, OR the manufacturer should consider making a separate "finesse" size standup jig.

Chompers Stand-Up Jigs
High quality, durable and worth the price. My favorite jig head for smallmouth in deep water. The deeper you fish and the stronger the wind the heavier the jig should be. Add your favorite plastic (mine is a 4 inch Gulp minnow) and hold on. Keep your line tight and slowly hop it off the bottom. The only disadvantage is my local Bass Pro (Toronto) does not sell it in the store so I have to order online.
