The smaller profile of our Tungsten Bass Jigs will slide better through heavy cover compared to the conventional lead jigs. The unique properties of tungsten also gives anglers the ability to fish a jig with the same weight as its lead counterparts in a smaller and more compact offering. This makes it easier to work through thick grass and dense structure. Additionally, tungsten also possesses a higher level of sensitivity than lead. The Bass Team Tackle Tungsten Jigs are constructed with a premium needlepoint hook, specially sealed paint coating, and a high-end weedguard. Bass Team Tackle uses only the High Density D18 tungsten in our jigs to offer you the hardest, densest jig on the market.
Tungsten Jig Manufacturing Processes
Just a little FYI to help you buy the quality of Tungsten Fishing Jigs you deserve. There are two ways of producing Tungsten Jigs:
Process 1. The jighead is molded in two halves and welded to the hook and then the two halves of the jighead are welded together. Any imperfections are then coated with tin and then the jighead is ground smooth. This type of jighead yields a head density of 17.8g.cm3 or sometime commonly known as T18.
Process 2. Tungsten dust is mixed with epoxy and injected into a mold that surrounds the hook and then is removed from the mold. There is less labor with this process but the density of the head is only 13 g/cm3 because of the amount of epoxy within the tungsten.
Bass Team Tackle uses Process number 1 which gives you a jighead that is 37% more dense than process number two. Our process is more expensive but gives you a harder, denser jighead with a smaller size for the same weight and isn’t that why you prefer tungsten.
Now when you compare the pricing of our high density jigs and their low density jigs it will be obvious our pricing is still lower due to our low overhead. That means more value for you.
