I would like to know what your favorite weedless jig is. I need to buy a mold and was wondering what one would be the best seller. I have had alot of people ask if I have them in weedless jigs and have lost alot of sales because of this.

Where's the weedguard?!
The jig shown is one by Gotstafish and is similar to the Barlows, looks like the same mold. The mold can accommodate a fiber weed guard, its up to the jig maker to insert the guard when molding. You can use a True Turn Hitch Hiker and short worm section for a weed guard also, with jigs that have horizontal hook eye.

Interesting design to protect the line tie at the hook eye. This is one of the shortest jig hooks I've seen used.The jig head being the heaviest part of a jig falls downward through the water column with the line trailing behind on a vertical drop presentation like flipping or pitching into pockets. When a bass strikes this short shank hook jig the head will follow the line pull when you set the hook and pull the bullet shape out the basses mouth without hooking into tissue, unless the bass turns away from the line pull direction. The design relies on a wide gap hook in an effort to over come the problem. This good looking jig maybe just as fishless as it is weedless, if cast horizontally or the bass strikes it like like a crawdad falling vertically. Just my opinion.
