Does many people use this size of head? I was looking at getting this mold, but if there is not a huge demand for it I don't need it. I have a 1/32oz and a 1/16oz mold. Just curious to see what everyone has to say.

Also what about a 1/100oz head?

I doubt you will get much call for the 1/24. I like it, but its a pretty specialized size.

I actually used to use the frequently...now, I tend to work with the 1/32 and 1/64, Jigheads instead...or 1/16, which seems to be a good performer for most folks. Or restated, I like them, but it is hard to fish them when your boat buddy is using a 1/16 head, cause he has never heard of a 1/24 head... roflmao bang

LOL, that's what I was going to say: the majority of fishermen don't even know they exist.

I use it in place of the 1/32. It is the lightest I ever fish.

I have the mold, I use the 1/24th mainly in the winter or when fishing places that have high pressure from fishermen. Such as marinas and fishing barges.


I would rather die finding out there was no God than die finding out there is.

I'm not experienced in crappie but I am at fly tying. That so lite that it might be easier to use a cone head or tie on some bead chain eyes or dumbbell eyes.
