Tony great video, wish I would have seen it earlier. My question has to do with tying a loop knot on a twistlock hook. It seems like half the time the twistlock gets in the way of the loop being able to do what it’s supposed to do. Also I think the twistlock rubs up against the loop knot causing a weak spot. Curious about your thoughts. Love your tutorials. Jack N

Great tip Tony. Looking forward to trying this method as I love the durability of the Z-man products but I’ve found them more difficult to rig weedless and tend to only use them on a jig head.

Hey Tony…….I’ve tried rigging Z-Man plastics on the twist lock, the Mustad Grip Pin and other hooks, including a couple made by Z-Man specifically for their plastics and have come to favor the grip pin hooks (both weighted and unweighted). I don’t fish with Gulp products which may be better suited to the twist lock models.

Right, Tony….that makes sense. I’m playing with the new Texas Eye Jighead that just came out right now as another way to rig Elaztech. It’s a bit long for the MinnowZ but looks good with the DieZel MinnowZ. Will see if the fish like it tomorrow.
