Sooo I'm the only one who sees that big free swinging loop to jig connection as opposed to the established jig makers who have inconsistently drilled jigs that are often too close to the nose, weak, or too far back, dont swing freely?

Dont get me started on Salas brazing that needs a Dremel to smooth them out before you tie them on.

I see some advantages to that design.
I have never seen one in person.
I assume they are thru wired?

Brother....(laughing....) crappy welding is the way you tell.... your getting a "Genuine" SALAS. Been the same since the days of "Grandma".... in the 70's.

Good eye! I didn't even pay attention to the connection. That's interesting. Dammit! Now I have to try them.

    Yes they are through wire. The size and weight is comparable with the Tady 45, they also have spring loaded weight inside to help the jig being cast further.
