Just want to get some thoughts and opinions on what you guys prefer,

Vertical or Horizontal line ties on your Jigs?

Thanks in advance!

60 degree horizontal for me. Line thru is also nice, like you see on Jig X (Tournament Edge) jigs

I prefer vertical for flipping and horizontal for football jigs.

Vertical vs Horizontal can be interpreted as position of the eye on the nose vs top of the jig head and also as in line with the hook vs perpendicular to the hook.

Regardless, this is what I prefer
