Looks like they're gonna try the Xchange system with their max gap jig heads.

I can't think of a day on the open water I haven't wished for something similar to that. Gotta check those out for sure.

:hum re-tieing always keeps the line in good condition, and fingers warm this time of year. :roll:

I was impressed with these new jigs today. To have a few different jig heads in your pocket and be able to switch the color or weight (or both) without having to retie is pretty slick. I think the best part though is fishing a jig system that doesn't have you bustin' paint out of the eye of the hooks. I think they need some stand-up footballs or something though.

I wonder who they stole the design and concept from.
Chances are they were developed by a guy in his garage who didnt have the money to get it patented.

Or, they did get it patented, sold it to Lindy and are laughing all the way to the bank, right?

I got rid of most of my jigs because they were not wide gap and the smaller sizes could never fit a 3" plastic too good. This system looks like it will do that. I ordered some shiner jigs from Hutch, but thought i would pick this up and give it a try as well. Plan to put them to use this week.

came up with the idea in my garage and got a patent. tried to market it myself for a while but tough to get it out there. lindy treated me pretty good and they do a great job selling.

Must not do too good of a job selling, as they were all clearance sale at cabela's today.
