Best/Strongest Hooks For Do-It Bullet Jig

Rate this topic

9 posts in this topic

I'm going to purchase a Do-It Mold, Model #: JBS-6-A (Sz: 1/8, 1/4, 3/8, 1/2, 3/4, 1 Hk: 630 or 635 Collar: Barb).

 

I see what is recommended by Do-It but like the smiling bill styles I use I opt for a stronger hook. Can anyone recommend a stronger hook that will fit this mold without altering it or is their suggestion adequate?

 

Thank you!

I use the Mustad ones for the size specified. A little tight on the mold but no issues. That's the smaller mold I cant remember if the mustads will fit the 1/8-3/8/ oz heads but they will for 1/2 to 3/4.

Use a file / Dremel and open the grooves, the one for the hook and the one for the eye, to take thicker hooks and a brass eye

Forget the prebent hooks that are made to fit in the mold and use the quality forged hooks of your choice and these:

Long shank try Mustad 34184’s.  Short shank use Mustad #34185’s.  Both in appropriate sizes.  The recommended hooks are Eagle Claws, not especially strong.  You may have difficulty finding some sizes of the short shank Mustad #34185’s.  They are being discontinued.
