Gamakatsu Jigheads - Round
Used For Years
I have used these jigheads for years due to their strong sharp quality hooks and longer lengths. The only thing I really don't like is that with some plastics it is hard to get them onto the thick shank even when wetting them first, but overall a great product.

The problem with these jigheads is the 90 degree eye bend as opposed to a 60 degree bend. I think the 60 degree bend makes for better bait action and better hooksets. The product I prefer is the Bite-Me jigheads. Both products have Gamakatsu hooks, which are great. Another difference is that Bite-Me jigheads will hold a bait on the hook better, I think. Finally, there's the issue of price, and you will get more for your money with the higher-priced Bite-Me heads.

best jig head!
Best jig head i have ever used!! I use them for saltwater fishing with Gulp. Stays on longer, which mean, more fish and using less GULP. Great product!!

Good quality jig
Picked up a few packs of these just as an alternative to my usual jigs.
The weight on the front of the ball head angles down which can be an advantage when working soft plastics.
Hooks are simply amazing quality and have a nice point. I powder paint these black and the hook sizes are appropriate.
They are expensive compared to other jigs I purchase (which use gamakatsu hooks) but in a pinch, these will do just fine.
