Posting a few jigs I made. I'm NOT a pro. Had to hand paint the weed guards because I bought them in clear. "clear" is more like white, which I don't want on these jigs. When powder coating the heads the weed guards spread out a little, even using the heat tube to protect them, so I tied a little fishing line around them to firm them up. Wire tied the skirts and have collars for rattles. I tried the living rubber thicker skirt material, but not sure if I will like it. Do I need to do anything different when storing these versus silicone skirts? Thoughts on making these better?

Looks good man, I have found that powder painting with the weed guard in place is a pain. I always powder coat mine without the weed guards. They make a 1/8" Teflon pins that stick in the hole while powder painting. and remove the pin while paint is still hot.
