Since 2010, Shin Fukae of Osaka, Japan and Palestine, Texas, has worked with Gamakatsu to create a new wacky jig. It's called G Finesse Series Jighead Wacky and designed for American waterways.
It features two titanium V-shaped weed guards, which have perfect stiffness, lengths, and angles, and they retain that correct positioning throughout the day.
The head has a unique taper with a recessed hook eye. The heads are painted either green pumpkin or matte black.
The hook is a 1/0 EWG Gamakatsu that Fukae designed.
It's made in four sizes: 1/16-ounce,1/8-ounce ,3/32-ounce, and 3/16-ounce.
It will be available for anglers to purchase by mid-May.
