OK so I see the ball jigs in Wal Mart for half the price of tackle shops. I am a "get what you pay for guy" but I buy them and try them. These things kicked azz! I use them a lot. Caught many fluke to say 23-24". So I am out with Capt.Block and I set the hook on what felt like a monster fluke and my hook snaps off the ball jig! I was a little PO'd and thought about it and wanted to check the hooks on all of them. Tonight I checked them. They were so brittle they would snap like toothpicks!!! Ones that were used I could snap with my finger tips and not even enough pressure to break 2 pound test line. I wish you guys could see how easy they broke because 2 pound test junk line is probably stronger. Now I did this on like 20 jigs so it wasnt just one. The hooks are junk!!! They will be replaced with custom tied Mustads or Gami's. It makes me sick to lose a fish because of junk tackle!!!!
