The Blitz Football Jigs are bass fishing jigs featuring a hybrid cobra/football shaped head and NuTech's patented double guard design. NuTech Lures is known for their custom double weedguard technology which has proven to reduce snags while keeping the hook point completely uninhibited. Since their original splash onto the market with their Pro Series Jigs, they've been one of the hottest jigs in all bass fishing. They've continued to expand with the addition of this football inspired Blitz Jig. Capitalizing on customers desire for more options of the virtually "un-snaggable" design, the Blitz Jig features a wider head that is more suited for deeper water applications such as dragging the jig along ledges or over rock piles.
NuTech Lures double weedguard design is among the biggest trends going in all of bass fishing right now. Over the years many genres of lures have seen revolutionary design improvements, however, jigs have more or less remained the same until now. The revolutionary dual weedguard construction has proven itself more efficient in many ways. While most anglers would believe it to reduce snags, which it does quite nicely, perhaps the most significant benefit is the jig's ability to keep the hook point in prime hooksetting position. Single weedguard jigs have the tendency to lay on their side with the point aimed at obstructions. This will significantly inhibit a solid hookset that is required to penetrate the bass's jaw. Additionally, the weedguard's strands lie on the same plane as the hook point and impede upon the direct force to the fish's jaw resulting in poor hookup ratios and lost fish. While this style is relatively new to the market, some of the countries biggest pros have been keeping this design a secret and are finally letting the cat out of the bag. Unlike similar jigs, NuTech's wedguards are solid in construction - not of the fibrous variety - which is especially advantageous when fishing around cover as the strands can't catch on any slime. The solid piece patented weedguard offers protection from hanging up but more importantly greatly increases the hooking ratio --with a hook that is almost always found in the roof of the bass's mouth.
