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)  NOTE:  We are out of 1/8th with #2 hooks but have them with #1 and have them with a #2 sickle hook as well.




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 in sizes #1 or #1/0 for the 1/4th oz., #1 or #2  for the 1/8th oz. (3.5g), #4 for the 1/16th oz. (1.75g) and #6 for the 1/32nd oz. (.875g)  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.
