Z-Man EZ Keeperz Weighted Hook
Heads up if you fish swimbaits or other plastics in heavy cover! The unique Z-Man® EZ KeeperZ™ Weighted Hook helps eliminate the frustration of your soft plastic bait getting torn up or sliding out of place, so you can keep those missed opportunities to a bare minimum. Its front end features a patent-pending keeper consisting of a double-barbed, U-shaped stainless clip that holds ElaZtech, conventional plastics, and Gulp!® securely in place, properly aligned at all times. In addition, a small rubber O-ring at the hook bend prevents the bait from sliding up the shank—so your bait remains intact, with the heavy-duty, black-nickel hook always positioned for a solid set. 3 pack.

Buying more!!!I have used these hooks for over a year now and love them. I have used them on scented shrimpz, EZshrimpz, scented paddlerz, and many others. They hold the bait well, often through multiple catches! They are a little hard to rig but any other hook I have tried was harder due to the elaztech. I am buying more now and will keep on using them! My only wish is that Zman would make an unweighted one for using with the Pop Shadz!

Not ImpressedI love Z Man's ElaZtech Jerk ShadZ, but...they can be tough to rig. Was hoping these EZ Keeperz would be "the answer", however, I was disappointed. Double-barbed u-shaped clip does NOT penetrate well and does NOT stay in place unless it's crimped down hard (deforming nose of the bait). Like the concept of the small o-ring, but...it doesn't stay in place against the underside of the bait. I've found Mustad's un-weighted and weighted KVD grip-pin hooks to work better than these EZ Keeperz with Z Man's ElaZtech swimbaits and jerkbaits.

Keeps the bait onI used this for my last few trips and had amazing luck with it. after pinching the bait on the PaddlerZ it held the bait in place... atleast till the next hit. I was able to use the same bait for the entire day. Really happy with this product.

ZMan missed the mark hereDon't buy! Don't buy! The keeper does not work. Back to the drawing board ZMan engineers. You constantly have to re-rig the keeper. I love the plastic ball keeper on the hook shank. I wish more hook manufacturers would add this feature to their hooks. It helps keep the bait up flush the the barb. ZMan baits are notorious for falling down the hook shank and need to be pushed back up.
im trying to find out what size hook to use with the 5 Z-Man® Scented Jerk ShadZ hop somone can help me out.

If you're going to use the EZ KeeperZ, I would suggest the 5/0. That may seem big, but because of the way the EZ KeeperZ are rigged, the point lines up more toward the front of the bait than a regular EWG. If you're going to use a weighted EWG like the Gamakatsu weighted EWG or the Mustad Grip Pin Extreme, I would go with the 4/0. I hope that helps. There is also a library of rigging videos and tips on the Z-Man website, www.zmanfishing.com.
