I was thinking about using the Arkie or arkey head. Don’t hold me to it because I haven’t tried it.

Just make sure direction of hook eye so the split ring will line up with blade. It needs to be a flat eye.

I was actually hoping to open up the hook eye and attach the blade directly.

Poison tail or arky will both work.
I use the poison swing tail and cut the wire from on the bottom. It is easier than bending out the eye. It make a swing tail vibrating jig though. It vibrates alot, but does not have much action on the body. It does hunt like crazy with a fluke or straight tail trailer

I use the casting jig from do it.
The eye is out on front of the head so you have room to open it up for your blade.
I have made and used many and have had no issues.
If you want to slow roll a 1/2 ounce I use turbo blade.

I tested these out to see what I liked. The casting jig mold I have is a 30 degree eye while my army mold is 60 deg. The casting jig does well, but I prefer the arky myself. I like the action better without the out flaring skirts, which you can see by my toes. I am just learning to tie. I do not sell these, please dont PM me and ask.
