Default Slow Pitch/Long Fall Jigs... Drop Some Names

In my never ending passion for jigging I have entered the world of slow pitch/long fall jigging. Probably a big mistake as it requires new and expensive rods and jigs. Does anyone have any recommendations regarding affordable slow pitch/long fall jigs? Shimano is as always expensive. Any well made budget jigs out there? Looking for 200-250G.

Shimano is cheap compared to the authentic Japanese jigs. Jigging World has a lot of inexpensive knock off ones though.

Jigging world and jigging depot. Cost about 10 bucks a jig and won’t hurt too bad when you lose them.

rayscustomworks also sells high dollar Japanese jigs specifically for slow jigging. They also have the right terminal tackle.

As well as Blue Blue.
Falcon makes some decent jigs.

US manufacturers are YEARS behind the Japanese in jig as well as rod technology.

Try Jigging World, as well as Jig and Pop websites.

They are all made in China, find the ones you like and buy from aliexpress. Tell them you don't want the hooks and save even more. I get my $17 shimanos for $3

Are these also referred to as "flat fall" jigs?

I've been happy with H4L jigs, decent price for Sea Floor Control style jigs and they come unrigged. Ocean Cat also has a decent SFC knockoff, they're more expensive and come with hooks (but not enough to rig both ends of the jig).

Go to Alibaba.com, type in "slow pitch jigs" and you can get them straight from the factory in China. These companies that want to charge that kind of money for a stupid metal jig are crazy, the only thing crazier is the people that are actually buying them.

Can someone tell me what a "slow pitch" jig actually is? I use vertical jigs and the Striker flat fall jigs quite a bit, I just don't know the differences between those and a slow pitch jig.

Thanks for the business.

Vertical Jigs- are designed to create a reaction bite, when the jig is jerked thru the water column.

Flat fall- are designed to get the bite when the jig is falling thru the water column.

Slow pitch jigs are designed to stay in the strike zone and its best to use slow pitch gear with these jigs

Here is a good article explaining slow pitch jigs: https://www.sportfishingmag.com/slow...-how-to#page-6

You can get jigs on Alibaba but buyer beware. A number of these companies (Not All) are pumping out jigs just to make a quick buck. Slow pitch jigs are made from other metals besides just lead to get the correct action of the jigs, so it swims thru the water column. When it comes to designing jigs the Japanese are ahead of everyone else making them and they are using the jigs design combined with certain metals to make a high quality product. I do agree they are expensive.
