found these in a box at a county sporting good store today. The feathers are all but dry rotted off, I paid .10 cents apiece for them, a little powder paint, and redressing should do the trick.

$2.30 is not bad at all for 23 Road Runner jig heads regardless if dressed or not. Good find!!

I'm debating,what to dress them like.Im partial to marabou,but perhaps I will clean the chenille and feathers off,and use plastics on a few.....what you think?

Yanker I bought a big sack of different color fingernail polish a while back at a garage sale and have been using it to repaint some jig heads. I just clean them with alcohol that dries fast and then paint them then use a different color to dot to make the eyes. This may not last long but it will last for awhile.

The heads being gray is a plus for me. The Gray Ghost pattern is a winner here and lots of other places around the country. I tie a plain or gray head, gray or black body and a white or gray feather, hackle or maribou, to finish it off. A couple of pieces of flash is also a good plus. Or just slide a body of your choice and a spot of super glue and you're set.

I suppose I could leave them gray,And just put pretty dresses on them of different colors.roadrunners are new to my arsenal,I have a few that have different colored heads,so perhaps I will just save the paint like it is.

If I were to powder paint them,does the fact they are already painted pose any problems?
