    anyone throwing Caivo Irons?
    I threw these two 6X on Sunday for the first time... and they actually swim really good. Bigger sized right in between a 45 and a 14A. Really wide kick pattern... the faster you crank the wider it kicks. Maybe has to do with the second braised ring? Theyre completely free swinging of the line. $7.00 each at the GW Swap Meet... not bad I say... not bad...

    I like them. Both the new ones and the older ones before they added the 2nd ring. They all have a nice offset and swim well. They’re cheap too, but fish as well as more expensive jigs.

    The only downsides is the paint seems to chip off much easier than others. I also had a hook straighten on a 25ish yellow, but that was after 5+ fish that morning on straight spectra with a tight drag. With that said, they’re cheap and get bit, I’ll keep buying them.

    The 6x works great when the fish are on bigger baits. The 5x and the 3.2 are hard to beat. Use the 2.2 if at the Coronados.
    Jimmy makes some heavies that work well too.

    Yes. Really a fan of them. Like that almost all of them swim well and you don't need to weed thru them to find a good one.

    So far really happy with them. They swim as good as any salas or tady. I agree with the paint being a little on the thin side but after mine get chewed on I wrap them in squid wraps or I hydrodip them in birdshit colors.

    Good swimmers, get bit, inexpensively priced. But that prism tape on the back and shitty paint (JRI paint is even worse imo) is pretty ghetto.

    I also have a bunch of the old style (single ring). Only been out once throwing them, and the Yellows weren't biting that day (For anyone. Not just me :D). However, the swim seemed pretty darn good. I'll have a more glowing review about them once I've hung some meat on them. For now I can only say they LOOK like good swimmers.

    They are. I have killed COUNTLESS yellowtail on them. Trust me when I say they are good. Caivo, OCT, JRI, Tady, Salas, all tools one should have in the toolbox. No 1 jig is the best 100% of the time. Different tools for different jobs. It is up to you to figure out when and where to use each. :)

    Caivo jigs work. Just picked up a couple yellowtail on them a couple weekends ago and went back to Caivo to get 4 more. Make sure to tag him in any social media posts (@lbfishingsupply) and spread the word. He appreciates that and is a cool local store owner. I stop by for a quick chat anytime I need hooks, sinkers, jigs whatever.

    GW meaning Golden West College, that is.

    He named the new jigs after his kids. The 4x, 5x, 6x and 7x all have different names. You probably have the 3.2 Jigs (Marble mint - first pic) Second pick is the newer model jigs. Third pic is a well used 2.2 with about 15 yellowtail caught on it.

    Hope that info helps..

    That does help. Thanks. Yeah I only have the style like your first pic. I’ve only been able to find them on eBay. Will have to check for the newer style.

    You can purchase Caivo jigs online direct, with free shipping on orders $50 or more. The value is unbeatable and shipping is quick. Don't know if it is still going on, but jigs were on sale for $5 a pop........where you EVER going to beat that. Picked up 22 assorted at that price. Pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

    The first generation of Caivo jigs with the single ring upfront were all spray-painted and the paint did not hold up very well.

    The new jigs (2nd gen) with two rings up front are all powder coated and only a wahoo may do some damage.

    The best thing about Caivo jigs is they all swim great. If you think otherwise return it and get another no questions asked. Tell me who else will do that?

    You can find a whole wall full of these jigs at Long beach tackle supply.

    What is everyone’s thoughts on the second ring? Doesn’t that allow for the weld to move and get stuck on the hole?

    Fish these a lot and they get bit! Have seen a #38 yellow bite the full size caivo. Snapped the fishing syndicate rod in half but fish still got landed.
