Ultra Strong Tri-Forged jigheads mean serious business for Z-Man!
Anglers looking for something stronger on the hook front need look no further than the Z-Man DieZel Eye Jighead. Its standout feature is that it’s been Tri-Forged. Which means precision-cut angles that produce a strength-enforcing, three-sided configuration yielding muscle mass, and a definitive cutting-edge tapering toward the hookpoint. This is a jighead that means business! Little wonder if was voted Best of Show in the Terminal Tackle category at ICAST 2022 in July.
“While standard jig hooks are forged on two-sides, we equipped the DieZel Eye Jighead with exclusive Tri-Forge hooks, which feature a triangular cross section at the bend for unmatched strength,” notes Z-Man President Daniel Nussbaum. “Our hook-strength tests showed that the Tri-Forge Power Hooks were significantly stronger than traditional hooks. Makes all the difference in the world when you’re wrenching on a heavyweight saltwater predator. The points on these hooks are also sticky sharp for penetrating the toughest, boniest jaws that bite.”
More valuable assets encircle the jighead’s neckline. “We endowed the collar with sharp, dual bait barbs that keep soft plastics affixed tightly in place,” says Z-Man co-owner David Fladd. “Then, for adding an EZ Skirt ahead of an ElaZtech bait, we built in a second skirt keeper or retainer collar. Complementing an ElaZtech trailer with a colourful, lively jig skirt can be a huge enticement for big redfish, black sea bass and stripers. It’s another cool little asset many jighead makers neglect.”
Swimming with a smooth, shimmying action, the DieZel Eye Jighead matches elite paddletail baits like the 5-inch and 7-inch DieZel MinnowZ or 6-inch SwimmerZ™. Or, step up to a giant 8/0 DieZel Eye, which provides ample hook-shank length and bite to roll with an 8-inch Mag SwimZ™ or StreakZ XL™ all the way up to a 10-inch HeroZ™.
Retrieved horizontally or vertically jigged, the DieZel Eye activates your chosen softbait with style and distinction – balanced and ever-alert for the next bite.
Forged in eight hook-weight combinations, from a 3/8-ounce-6/0 size to a depth-probing 3-ounce-8/0 beast – each in Red, Glow or Chartreuse – the DieZel Eye Jighead taunts predatory giants to take their best shot. MSRP $5.99 to $11.99 per 2-pack.
