Ned Heads?

Throwing them on 6-pound test like I do, it's a good practice to re-tie frequently. Only takes 15 seconds total to snip off and retie a Palomar. Just sayin. Everyone has their own methods. 

I was just thinking that I retie constantly even with 17lb test dragging football jigs.  I've broken off too many on hooksets when I try to justify not retying.  It happens everytime with out fail!

Why not just glue up several before you get on the water and then just change out head and all when you want to change colors? 

Sounds ike a good excuse to get another spinning set up. I always look for a reason to buy more rods

I stopped by Sportsman's Factory Outlet in Springfield this morning an bought a couple packs of 1/8 painted head, look just like Dave's with the number 1 Mustad hook an the twisted strand weed guard. 25 for $17.

I also tried to buy from Dave but never heard back. I hope all is good.

I use these with a high level of success.  Best part is, Wally World sells a 5 pack under 2 bucks.  Arkie Stand Up Jig Heads.

When I first starting fishing the Ned this is the head I used first. It works okay but due to the angle of the head to the hook shank the worm just never does sit perfectly flush when glued. For being anal retentive on things like that I just couldn't continue using that Arkie head in good conscious. Once I went and got some of Dave's heads I never have ventured from them.

I feel like if your not using elaztec your ned rigging wrong.  Zinkers are the way to go,if you cut them you get 12 for the same price as 

8 trd's.   Ive put senkos and yum dingers in a fish tank and they fall over on there face...Elaztec stands straight up.  the head doesnt matter what so ever unless use use the proper plastic. (its pretty much a texas rig with a short worm)

If your bites are coming on the bottom while basically dead sticking it then you're definitely right.   If they are biting it while it's just drifting through the water column then it probably doesn't matter one bit whether it is a genuine TRD or a piece of a Senko.
