My favourite jigs are also harimitsu and Tsuriken but I always do better with the old faithful breaden gold/ pink. I also agree harimitsu jigs look great!

yeah the hari's look good, from what ive seen very different to yozuris, seem to be a lot of dark coloured ones

Have had a hard time finding info on the haris but, I noticed some had different coloured eyes, was looking at some yesterday but didnt buy any as Id idnt know what I was looking at.. some had blue others black.

Saw a nice orange one there with "glow" sticker on it, but I have al nice orange yozuri that looks pretty much the same.

Peter you sell the haris, any chance of a run down on them? and the others you stock.. maybe do a new topic dedicated to each one???

Roodog, mate just to give you a quick run down on them, however if you need any further info i'm happy for you to email us direct! =)

Appart from your standard features on all quality jigs Harimitsus have a great action to them, in fact very similar to tsuriken. Ultra sharp barbs, good sink rate and most importantly great colouration. I they predominatly have darker colours, I personally prefer darker colours as I do well on them. Dark reds, browns, pinks, pilchard colours.

Main difference between a good squid jig and a really good squid jig is the action and sink rate. Example being Breaden and Keystone jigs which are solid body jigs, they sink a lot more evenly than a yozuri etc which are not solid body. They also require a smaller lead weight at the front of them to sink them, and when using sizes 2.5 in shallow water conditions you can really get a great action of of them. In saying that in no way do I think harimitsus or yo zuris are crap as they are a proven top performer.

If your land based you might want to chech out the jingo rocketeer range. These allow you to cast the jig weight first giving you a greater cast allowing you to cover more ground, a common problem while land based!

Have a read of an article I shared not long ago with some guys from the Brisbane egi club:

Hope this gets you started!

as with the harimitsu jig eye blue i believe is normal sink rate and black is fast sink rate. i think thats what i read, i think its the same as the yamashitas.
