These jigs holding up pretty well given the areas that you fishing them. Even after banging them off rocks, roadbeds, and wood all day, the hook is still sharp and the head is not too banged up.

The grooved head really does help you feel what you are fishing, especially wood. Those grooves also seem to help the jig stand more upright when it crawls a crossed the bottom

Great diversity, you can put just about any trailer you want on them and change the action, shape, and size of the bait. These jigs are just as affective in 3 feet of water as they are in 30 feet.

These football heads are some of the better ones on the market. Good hooks, good skirts, the grooved heads, all at a good price. They work great, just casting them out and dragging them back to you.

Pros Cons
Holds up well Limited number of colors
Brush guard match the bait nicely Limited sizes
Strong hooks

RECOMMENDATIONS: Here are a few recommendations that you should consider before throwing these lures to make you more successful.  Consider what you are going to be fishing with these lures, rocks, stumps, ect. You want to be sure to use a good fluorocarbon line, 15-20 lb test.  Fluorocarbon line has many advantages, it’s more abrasive resistant, has lower stretch, and it’s virtually invisible under the water.  Another thing to consider is the trailer that you put on your jig.  Twin tail grub, craws, and creatures are all good choices.  As far as color goes, a black and blue jig with a black or black with blue fleck trailer is a classic .

Notes

Durability/Strength

9

For any bass that you will be culling in the Pennsylvania water systems, the Cull-Buddy is strong enough and will handle the fish well. Up to 15 lbs per tag.

Mounting

8

This is the only area that I can see a flaw in the product. For most guys this may not make a difference, but I don’t like exposed bolt heads on top of the boat carpet. See notes below.

Culling Fish

10

Since the tag is through the fishes lip, it makes it easy to use a balance beam to cull fish.

Price

10

You get what you pay for when it comes to this product. It may be a little more expensive than other systems, but it is worth the money.

Availibility

8

Currently, the only place that I have found the product is the cull-buddy website, but they will have them to you in the matter of days.

Cull-Buddy

Pros

Cons

Mounts on livewell lid. Tag is through fishes lip.
Durable and strong. Bolt through carpet and exposed.
Colored and numbered tags.  
Can be used with any culling beam.  
Keeps boat more organized.  

NOTES: This is a great product based on a great idea.  You tag fish and put them in the livewell, so why not mount the tags in the livewell.  This helps keep the boat more organized and saves precious time when in a tournament.  It saves time by you not looking for tags and being able to hook the tag onto the culling beam.  As far as mounting is concerned, if you don’t mind seeing the 4 bolt heads on top of your carpet the livewell lid mount is great.  I don’t truly have a solution to this problem besides mounting it inside a compartment.  Which, mounting the system in the compartment will not help you save time on the water.  By using this product I guarantee that you save time and become a more efficient tournament fisherman.  Balance beam and scale are not included with the cull-buddy.

ABOUT THE CRITIC:  You must know that I am very critical of my lures.  I only have about 3 lures that I use that would receive a perfect 50 and I personally modify those lures once I have them.  I consider any lure over 40 great and any lure over 30 good.  Anything less than 30 and you probably won’t see it in my tackle box.
