The unique Cobra Head position means less material in the hook gap for a better bite, and its tapered nose helps reduce lip blow out. The shape and weedguard angle reduce hang-ups while the wide footprint of the head helps increase your feel of the bottom. Other features include chip-resistant paint and premium skirts. Celebrated jig fisherman Denny Brauer, who helped design the jig, says the Structure Jig does in fact decrease your hang-ups and increase your hookups when casting into structure.
