Kalin's® Ultimate Saltwater Bullet Jigheads - Unpainted
Best jighead for swimbaits
I use the 3/8-1oz version for throwing single swimbaits such as Strike King Shadalicious or Yum Money Minnow. It's got a stout hook strong enough to handle just about any fish in fresh or saltwater. Compared to the Owner version of this hook, Kalin's has a slightly shorter shank...which is good for lighter heads and smaller baits (3/8oz Owner jighead is too long-shanked for 3.5" swimbaits). It's also slightly less expensive than Owner's jigheads.
Though not weedless like belly-weighted hooks, this outfit presents swimbaits in a more realistic presentation where only the tail has action and swims more naturally. This rig also let you fish the bottom more effectively. I have great success letting the bait sink to the bottom, then stroking up and allowing to fall again on semi-slack line. The lead head transmits good feel of bottom composition through the rod, as well.

Adds to swimbait profile and balance. Allows for bombing casting distance

Unpainted Jig Head
Did just what they were supposed to do. Like the wide gap on the hook.. I do a lot of jetty fishing and the lead head let it hit the rocks and still look new. It probably still looks new since it got hung up and I had to break it off. I was using a basspro snap and even though the 30 pound looks small I couldn't break it with 20 pound test.

Quality Construction and shap hooks. Work great with Berkley Powerbait and GULP 5" Saltwater Swim Shad.
