The mid to low centre of gravity helps the jig reach depths faster so this is good for time-saving, rapid jigging.
The jig's lower water resistance and balance ratio of 35:65 helps to save energy and use a lighter-weight jig when jigging.
The feeling of when the jig hits the seabed is very obvious.
The jigging method used with jig is a fast, large movement with a slow reeling-in action. This causes a senses of no movement this is when the jig is descending. The second strike causes the jig to rapidly turnover, the wavelengths developed generally attracts larger fish.
This jigging method resulted in a record-breaking catch for King Fish of 48kg in New Zealand for 2012.
