After fighting a 100 lb tuna on a tight drag, I noticed the eye rings pulling out ?
The lower ring was starting to tear out of the lead as well.

That's why I bought 20 of them...
They work
I also wonder if they were a rigid bait....would the hooks stick as well as they do. Would a rigid jig "pry" the hook out?
Who knows

Yeah , these jigs are usually a few fish and trashed ,
They usually get damaged after the fish has been landed and the fish is flopping around on deck ….

They do kill fish though!!!
