ECOPRO DELUX (amphipod)
Perhaps one of the most interesting jigs in the entire fishing segment, which allows you to catch perch and roach with a high degree of success. It has been on the market for a long time (more than 20 years), but it does not lose its popularity at all. The reason for this is simple: with a series of color updates, it has become much easier to fish in reservoirs of different light levels. Initially, the body of the amphipod was a monochromatic ribbed drop, 'painted' with electroplating in a standard range of colors (from metallic to gold). Gradually EcoPro began to introduce two-tone lure models, the tail (or stigma) of which was painted mainly in bright colors, in combination with the standard ones.
This color configuration allowed the Deluxe amphibian to completely attract predators when navigating vertically. Together with an interesting game, only a well-fed fish could refuse such a jig. Among the other advantages of this bait, one can single out a low cost, an abundance of standard sizes (three in a series), as well as a high resistance of the coating to various kinds of wear.
- optimal combination of price and quality;
- high catchability of perch and roach;
- three standard sizes in a series (from 3 to 5 millimeters);
- bright two-tone colors available;
- popular with experienced anglers.

Nautilus 'Ribbed Devil'
An interpretation of the classic winter version of the no-attachment jig from the Nautilus company, which has come to the liking of thousands of experienced anglers in our country. It is supplied to the market in four sizes: diameters from 2.6 to 3.0 millimeters. Very accurately copies the outlines of the body of most larvae and pupae, which is why it demonstrates excellent fishing results (especially in reservoirs with good illumination). Like most of its competitors, the 'Ribbed Devil' is electroplated, so there are at least four colors in each variation: black nickel, copper, silver and gold. In order to preserve the galvanic layer of the bait for a long time, manufacturers prudently covered it with a special waterproof varnish.
The soldered tees on this jig are products of the Gamakatsu company, which are distinguished by their high resistance to corrosion and sharpness. The attachment of the 'Devil' to the line is made through a hole in the tungsten body, which guarantees a secure and fixed fit throughout the entire fishing trip.
- high resistance of the coating to wear and corrosion;
- stable vertical movement;
- four typical sizes of jig in a series;
- maximum approximation of the form to the body of standard larvae and pupae;
- high-quality fittings (tees).

ECOPRO Deluxe 'Banana'
The first jig in the rating, which is fastened not through a through hole, but through an eyelet in the upper body. However, this does not affect the playing qualities and indicators of the catch – the 'Banana' behaves in the water in a completely original way. EcoPro was able to optimally balance the body and ensure its alignment with the hook, which had a positive effect not only on the nature and reliability of the hook, but also on the perfect play of the lure when diving vertically.
With a diameter of 5.0 millimeters, the EcoPro Deluxe 'Banana' weighs an impressive 1.8 grams. This is achieved through the use of heavy tungsten as a material, which is extremely insensitive to various kinds of wear. However, to ensure reliable protection, an electroplating coating is also used here, the variety of which is limited to four standard colors. According to consumers, 'Banana' performs very well when hunting for perch, especially in the brightest color variations. As time has shown, it has no obvious weaknesses – both the price and the quality completely satisfy even the most picky fisherman.
- low price;
- high catchability of perch;
- the possibility of a decent deepening of the bait;
- the presence of lateral edges, giving the jig unpredictability during vertical movement;
- excellent factory balancing of the jig.

An iconic tungsten jig made by Tula craftsmen, which got into the rating due to its excellent fishing performance in reservoirs. It has a high density (about 18 g / cm3), which allows you to confidently deepen, regardless of size. And there are three of them. The smallest version of the Ant is 2.5 millimeters in size and weighs about 0.39-0.40 grams. The intermediate version weighs 0.65 grams with a size of 3.0 millimeters, and the largest has dimensions of 3.5 millimeters in length and 1.17 grams of net weight.
Has a 'Ant' and a number of design features. So, the installation of the fishing line is carried out through a special hole in the body, which, in order to prevent quick wear of the fishing line, is equipped with a cambric spacer. True, due to the impossibility of tight fastening, the line in the hole makes micromotions, which leads to local wear of the cambric and entails the need for its periodic replacement. The rest of the construct was only beneficial: the flat in the side gives the jig an attractive game, and the thin soldering of the hook (manufactured by the Japanese company Hayabusa) firmly fixes it on the tungsten body.
- excellent catchability of roach;
- three standard sizes within one series;
- excellent design solutions;
- high popularity with domestic fishermen;
- an attractive game without the slightest glitches.
- the need to periodically replace the cambric in the hole for the fishing line.
The most spectacular jig in the fishing segment with the poetic name 'Nymph' was also awarded a place in the rating. According to all the canons of modern trade, the Salmo company relied on two fundamentally different design options for this bait … and never regretted it. Together with the standard tungsten 'pigs', painted by galvanic method, in the assortment of the 'Nymph' series there are also fluorescent models designed for fishing in low light conditions. Each model described has two sizes. In the first case, the body length is 8.5 millimeters, and the weight does not exceed 0.42 grams. In the second – 7.2 millimeters, but due to the increased thickness parameter (4.0 millimeters), the weight of this option is within 0.79 grams.
Depending on the storage capacity of the fluorescent composition, Salmo 'Nymph' can shine under water from 45 to 120 minutes, greatly irritating the fish around it. As an additional alluring effect on the body of the jig there is a flat, which gives its movement special vibrations. According to consumers, this is the best bait for catching perch and breeder at night, with which we simply cannot disagree.
- the presence of standard and fluorescent models of jigs in the series;
- an original game with an additional 'dose' of unpredictable fluctuations;
- two size modifications;
- high quality base coat.
- low weight, resulting in low penetration ability.
Latvian development of Finnex company (known in Russia under the Swarovski brand), which is a very plausible imitation of the amphipod crustacean. Nevertheless, the name 'Banana' stuck to the jig, since it is it that most accurately suits the description of all the faces of a single shape. Thanks to the use of tungsten as the main material, the manufacturers managed to endow this bait with a significant weight (1.4 grams) with a diameter of 4 millimeters. This feature allowed not only to increase the depth of the deepening, but also to give the game more variability.
As users note, if you want to change the movement of the 'Banana' during posting, you just need to change the method of fixing the jig on the line. The main feature of the model relative to its competitors lies in the originality of the color scheme. Within the framework of this series, there are practically no trivialities: the bodies of all jigs are painted like real wobblers, and some even have additional alluring elements in the form of imitation of eyes or red beads. According to experienced anglers, Swarovski 'Banana' is one of the most catchy lures in its segment, suitable for perch fishing, roach fishing, and even for hunting bogeyman.
- high level of color design of miniature jigs;
- the ability to change the attachment of the bait to the line, changing its play;
- the presence of additional alluring elements (eyes, beads and beads, monolithic bright tides);
- can be used as a non-nosed winter bait.

Lumicom 'Drop' with eyelet orange
An experimental development of domestic manufacturers, the catchability of which has led to incredible popularity when casting in reservoirs of limited illumination. There are several reasons for this: firstly, at the time of the invention, this jig was considered one of the cheapest, but sharpened for giving the maximum result. Secondly, the catching situation was greatly simplified by the bright orange or red tidal droplet, which manifested itself as a guide for the predator's attack.
In general, this variation of Lumicom came out quite standard. Its diameter at its widest part is 7 millimeters, and its weight is just over 4.5 grams. Thanks to such indicators, 'Kaplya' splendidly deepens into horizons up to 2-3 meters, luring out perch, roach and bream (mainly at dusk). In terms of value, this jig underwent a slight increase in price, but still remained one of the cheapest in its segment.
- attractive price;
- good penetration rates;
- five types of color and one dimensional modification;
- strong visual alluring effect.

Lucky John 'Garlic' (Goat)
Mormyshka invariably ranked among the best as one of the most provocative baits. Its tungsten body is shaped like a garlic clove, which gave rise to the official Russian name. With diameters from 3 to 5 millimeters, the weight of the models ranges from 0.5 to 1.85 grams, which makes them one of the heaviest in their class. Accordingly, the I / O hooks are also selected by size: classification numbers 12-14 are used.
The main feature of Lucky John's 'Garlic' is the presence of a noticeable bead in red or yellow on the shank of the hook, which eliminates the need for a bloodworm. As in a series of competitive models, the jig is placed on the line through a hole in the tungsten body. Similar to the Tula 'Ant', this lure is designed with a soft rubber cambric, which eliminates the rapid wear of the fishing line during friction. True, he himself, unlike his opponent, extremely rarely falls into disrepair. According to the fishermen, 'Garlic' is one of the coolest non-nosed jigs, capable of showing excellent catch results throughout the winter season.
- the curved shape gives the bait horizontal vibrations;
- a bead serving as a visual and acoustic decoy;
- high durability of the coating (multi-colored electroplating + varnish);
- acceptable price.
- deepening is strongly limited by the weight of the jig (the exposure is greater than that of the opponents).
Best jig for bream
Lumicom 'Shot' Bream d8 black lacquer
The bream jig from the Russian manufacturer Lumicom is an extremely simple design that can only be thought of for this type of bait. An ordinary carbide pellet with a diameter of 8 millimeters, the weight of which is 4.7 grams. Thanks to such indicators, it very easily and quickly dives to a depth, from where it effectively drives bream, however, only during daylight hours.
As elements of attraction, this jig uses a red cambric with beads pressed onto it, which performs the function of an artificial worm when a bloodworm descends. In terms of visibility, Lumicom's 'Drobinka' is not the most reference model. Painted in black varnish, it often goes unnoticed, fortunately, it is saved by a barely noticeable red 'tail' and bait. However, the professionals say that it even plays into the hands – the black base is guaranteed not to scare away cautious fish. The attachment of the jig to the line occurs thanks to the through hole, which is also equipped with a soft colored cambric to reduce line wear. In terms of price, 'Drobinka' is positioned quite expensively, but it pays for the costs after the first fishing trip.
- irrigation bait for bream (other predators are often caught);
- cambric to reduce line wear in the attachment points of the jig;
- the presence of small elements of attraction;
- high quality workmanship;
- decent dimensions, allowing the bait to quickly go to depth;
- quite high cost.
