Fred Hall Long Beach Show: Part 1 - Freshwater Coverage
Strike: Next we
met up with Bobby Uhrig who showed us the latest version of his Evolution jig
design. The new Shake2 (the “e” stands for evolution) Jig is very
different than traditional jigs and incorporates the award winning technology
from their original Evolution Jig into the design. There is a fulcrum on the
bottom of the bait which acts as a balancing point which hydrodynamically
balances the head every time.

With or without a lure
rigged Bobby was able to demonstrate the difference between the Mega Strike
design and traditional jigheads by tossing them into a fish tank from over three
feet away. 9 out of 10 times traditional jigheads would simply roll over
sideways, while each and every time the Shake2 Jig landing perfectly
The Shake2 jig can be rigged with
the hook exposed or weedless
The Shake2 Jig
has a two trailer keeper design allowing worms and craws to be rigged with the
hook exposed or weedless. With the bait tied on via a recessed line tie it
becomes even more impressive. When jerked and dropped the bait holds worms and
creature baits perfectly upright every time. The Shake2 Jig heads are
powder coated rather than painted so they hold up better to abuse.
Rig it as
straight as possible
The jig was really
impressive and simply the most innovative jighead design we have seen in years,
and breathes new life into the way that anglers can present finesse baits.
has a unique fulcrum which bobby explained always allows the jighead to land
upright...we said "prove it"
One of the coolest things
about these lures is that you can really get creative in the way anglers fish
them. Bobby hinted that with a swimbait tail the jig can help the lure impart a
very unique action, one fish haven’t seen before. The Shake2 Jig will
be available in a matter of days and will come in packs of 4 and will retail for
only $4.95 per pack.
