Egret Jig Heads are built like no other. We use premium Mustad Ultra Point hooks coated with Black Nichol that are saltwater resistant. We also use a wide gap for a better hook set. We shape our heads so the water can flow around the head and let the lure do the work. Ball head jigs don't allow flow and push water in front of the lure. They "steal" the action of any well designed lure.
