oldschool said:BPS offers Ball Buster and Weed Wacker jigs made with tungston. Just curious, why are interested in tungston jigs?
oldschool said:The most important feature of any jig is the hook. The head design and weight are needed to present the jig where and how you want it. The easiest jig the learn how to fish is the spider jig on a head design that keeps the hook off the bottom. Depending on the depth, line size and structure or cover you plan to fish will determine the style of jig head needed. Shakey heads are a rebirth of the pea or round head, neither design keeps the hook off the bottom and will allow the hook to roll over and snag. Swimming jigs used for finesse fishing are dart heads. I believe you are better off using a drop shot worm presentation instead of the shakey head jig, a dart head for swimming curl tail worms and a stand up or football head for spider jigs. Select jigs made with premium hooks like; Daiichi, Gamakatsu, Owner, Mustad Ultra etc. Bass do not hold onto jigs like a plastic worm and you need to learn to hook set instantly to be successful. Tungsten is heavier than lead and offers a smaller size head compared to lead. The head shape is far more important than size and lead works OK, unless you need a heavy small size to penetrate cover.
