Mustad KVD Fastach X-Rigs
The Mustad KVD Fastach X-Rigs are completely customizable fishing rigs that are similar in appearance and application to the Jika or Jig rig. Utilizing Fastach connection technology, the X-Rig allows anglers to easily change out the rig's hook or weight without having to untie from the line. When fishing, adjustments are key to catching more fish. With the Fastach X-Rig anglers can not only switch out their worms for different colors, they can change their plastic bait to an entirely different style. For example - you're fishing a big curl tail worm out deep, but think maybe the bass are a little hesitant. Maybe they'd prefer a finesse worm? There is only one way to find out. But, hey, while you're at it, maybe the weight is a little overpowering for the fish so switch that up too. No need to re-tie, just slip off the entire hook/plastic worm and sinker, make your changes and get back to fishing. That simple!
If you've never fished a Jika or Jig Rig before, then you've been missing out. The Mustad KVD Fastach X-Rig, which is constructed with the same design, presents your soft plastic bait in an entirely different way than our traditional bass fishing rigs. Best described as a hybrid dropshot/jig/texas rig, the X-Rig uses the same connection point for the hook and weight, but both are free moving. As the weight sinks to the bottom, the plastic follows, but remains a few inches from the bottom like a drop shot in a way. Employing this rig you can put your bait in small crevices and cracks of rocks and brush that would otherwise be a tall order for a light line drop shot or exposed hook jig. The action of the Mustad X-Rig is tremendous due to the freedom afforded by the non-fixed hook.
With this setup, the bait can move in ways it never has been able to before enabling the plastic to reach it's full potential. Imagine the action you can impart on your lures. Plastic companies create these brilliant designs that deliver a ton of action, but the traditional rigging techniques limit that to a very small range of motion. The hinged connection frees the bait to move in a number of directions - float upward, shake, swing side to side - whatever the inherent action of the plastic may be, you'll get the most using the Mustad KVD Fastach X-Rig.
We offer the Mustad KVD Fastach X-Rig in four configurations, 2 per pack. The standard setup includes a torpedo style sinker and a wide gap offset hook.
