How well do these stand up?
I'm on a tight budget, and most of the football head jigs are a little bit more expensive than I can afford, so I'm wondering if this'll stand the hook up as well as a football head jig.

I don't normally use football head jigs. But I've caught at least 20 bass on one jig if that helps.

Yes, but it may hang up in rocks more that a football and won't wobble as much. I love this jig!!

i believe it does. it has a heavy hook and i have always gotten good sets with it. the only thing negative i can say about this is that the rattles fall off with every fish. so now i swap out the rattle band and they work great. the craw pattern is my go to bait. i use the 5/8 and 3/4 oz. also won't get hung up as much as a football

Well actually this jigs are meant to swim through not dragged on the bottom.

You get what you pay for when it comes to fishing! The hook dose stand up in the water. I have used both the foot ball ( strike king ) and the boo jig. I catch bigger fish on this jig over the football.The football is good but this one to me is better. I use this jig year round. And have won a bass durby with the largest SMB .

It will stand up but the design is not as advantageous for coming through rocks. I like to flip or pitch it into grass, holes in the grass or outside/inside weed lines. Count down the fall and compare the depth; often Bass will inhale before it can reach bottom and you will want to set the hook ASAP.

They don't stand up on the bottom nearly as well as a football head jig because the head is more narrow. It will stand up for a little while on the bottom, but will soon fall on it's side, especially if you are dragging it on and over rocks. Hope this helps.
