Round Ball No Collar Bismuth Jig Heads


Tying your own lead free jigs starts with a quality bismuth alloy that has a specific gravity nearly the same as lead but without the toxicity.  They can be powder painted.  Cure them at a lower temperature (see instructions below)




These jig heads are a bismuth majority alloy that makes them sink just as quickly as a lead jig without the cost to the environment when they are lost.  We use Mustad Aberdeen hooks:  1/4th oz. (#1,#1/0, #2/0), 1/8th oz. (#2,#1,#1/0, #2/0), 1/16th oz. (#4, #6, #8) 1/32nd oz (#10, #8, #6, #4).

POWDER PAINTING:  Bismuth jig heads can be powder painted.  This alloy has a lower melt point than lead so if you are using a high heat source such as a propane torch adjust your heat exposure accordingly as they will heat up more quickly.  A hot air gun is the preferred source of heat when powder coating jig heads whether lead or bismuth alloy.  However, a butane lighter or candle can also be used successfully.  Cure bismuth alloy heads at a slightly lower temperature (325F) for 20 minutes.
