WHAT A CACHE!!!! I hear that the 3.2 oz. model swims most enticingly. Care to share your wisdom about "what characteristics make one Caivo jig swim better than the next"??? When you guys are confident enough to purchase jigs by the zillion, you must know some of their secrets!!! Please
Ok guys heres the skinny on the Caivo jigs. Ive had quite a bit of success with them. In fact the YT in my pic is proudly wearing a Caivo in its lip. What I believe to make the Caivo swim so well is a few things. Allll the jigs have an offset hip, sharp edges, slightly offset eye, and thick front end. All this combined causes them to swim erratically and kick out in a way that makes the fish want to die! In my opinion all the jigs are basically the same and have these same characteristics. Also the thick front end makes them very effective at a slower retreive which keeps them in the strike zone alot longer. Longer exposure=more strikes.
Well said FunnyguyI'm not going to say Caivo jigs catch more fish then any other surface iron that also swims well. I will say all the Caivo jigs I've personally used have been good swimmers and they reliably get hit by fish when they want the surface iron. Not affiliated.
You hit the nail on the head buddy.Thank you Chris and Phil for that info. It's nice to hear that a jig manufacturer has finally decided to make jigs that swim THE MAJORITY OF TIME as opposed to doing so on rare occasions!! I wish that the other nameless manufacturers would take a hint and realize that they'd sell alot more jigs if they followed this simple tenet. Thank you Caivo and JRI for making jigs that are worth the price that is being charged!!
Yeah Jimmy stands by his product thats for sure.A buddy put me on the Caivo jigs last season and they are now one of my favorites. Great price and great action. The added bonus is the customer service that Jimmy (Caivo Tackle) provides. If you ever have an issue with any of his jigs he will make it right.
