You guys cannot be serious with that name! :thumbsup2:

Can I pose a question in regards to soft body squid jigs. How durable are they? No actually seeing one of the jigs ( I know Shimano have recently released a similar product) how do they compare to normal cloth jigs? I am quite sure a few bites from some pesky leather jacketsand that jigs would be gone!!

Seems a little spendy for a lure that could be bit in half by a hungry blue fish. I like the silicone idea though.

The way that squid and leatherjackets demolish soft plastic lures, that squid jig wouldn't last too long, especially if it's scented.

Hi SouthCoastSquidder
I would like to reply to your question, but cant find any other opened window to reply. I trust you will get this. If I make a mistake - sorry - still learing.

Soft Body Squid Jigs and how durable are they?

Ok, method 1 - working the jig (casting and retrieving)
We seem to get more hits with this new / scented/ soft body jig than with any other hard body jig.
Using this method the jig showed some kind of attackness but overall performed very well.

Method 2 - attached to a float ( more severe testing)
Kakyadaks performed great, more like Silver Whiting and the squid really hooked themselves up on the soft baits ( unbelievable), unlike the hard body jigs ( we tried several inclusive Shrimp Hunters etc) or any other plastic/fabric covered jig, were squid was biting but soon let go of the actual jigs. We experienced this a number of times. - Several other fishing buddies confirmed same findings -
Now, we don't know if this is due to the "extra softness" or due to the "exorbitant smell" but the combination seems to work fine. ( we appreciate and like to ask for others to please comment on the new Karyadaks - Squid Jigs)
On average the Kakyadaks outperformed by about 10 : 1
Each jig lasted about 10 - 12 squid ( method 2) Now if you calculate how much money would you spend on Silver Whiting in comparisson to the Kakyadaks.

Its great to see that the word "Kakyadaks" puts a smile on peoples faces. :thumbsup2:
Thank you for your :angel: comment!

Hi Tatonka,
thanks for your comment and idea.

The Kakyadaks, although soft silicone body, has a patented ribbing that is being used and therefore makes it very durable.

Look, the soft silicone body will eventually be attacked bejond recognition, but is this not what we hope for?? At least it proves that something likes or dislikes the smell. Posted Image

ProFishional, sounds like you have put a lot of thought into your product. I understand they are new and I havent seen anyone using them in the U.S. so far. Do you have any resellers in the Northeast? If you have read any of the post from Newport, RI you'd see the squid are really hitting right now.

Tatonka
sounds like you going to enjoy a huge squid season. - Best of Luck - to all at your end of the world.
The Kakyadaks is still very very new on the market. We have been testing them for several month now, but only launched them on the 1st of May. A lot of time, testing and thoughts went into this project. At this stage, we do not have a reseller in the USA, but the Jigs are available on-line www.profishional.com
For your info: ProFishional P/L will be represented at the ICAST 2007 held in las Vegas in July this year.
