    I get my 1/32 oz jigs from Cabela's. For 1/64 oz, you could use the ones that come with the bodies.

    There are many JDM jig heads. The one that myself....and many others....think is the sharpest jig head made is the Daiwa Gekkabijin jig head. As with many tackle manufacturers right now many things are hard to source. I seriously doubt you will be able to find anyone who has those in stock. I get several emails a week of folks inquiring as to where they can get them. I would also take a look at Decoy jig heads. All JDM light game jig heads are very sharp but the Gekkabijin jig heads are at the top of the heap fir sharpness.

    You can find a few in the "Glow" color still available, but the black ones have mostly vanished. I was told by one vendor that the size I (we) like, 954747 (JAN), was discontinued by Daiwa. I've never seen any of the red glow jigs anywhere. I bought all I could find, also in the #6 hook size. The JDM hooks are a bit bigger than the same USA size number.

    Maybe a letter-writing campaign to Daiwa is in order? Otherwise, I've switched to a 1/32 or 1/24 oz. ball head with a quality #6 sickle hook. These are pretty sharp, but the Matzuo sickle hooks have also vanished.

    Would it be worth it to try and organize some sort of group buy for those daiwa jig heads? Not sure we would have enough interest but we could always try.

    These are nice, the best part is the wire keeper so your plastic stays put.

    The above are nice jigs. Also, troutmagnet also has the jig in a 1/32 size.

    Also check out the Shimano Soare jig heads. I've caught plenty of gills, crappie and even a few bass with the little jigs. You can get them on eBay. I also like the Diawa Gekkabijin jigs but Alphahawk has bought all that are available!

    You can see the Soare head in the pic below.

    I've got a few of the Gekkabijin pink glow heads in some odd sizes on the way, but I also ordered some of the Decoy Aji Drive jigs to try out. I've had the Decoy Super Round jigs before, and I was definitely impressed with their sharpness.

    Here's the Aji Drive jigs I have ordered: DIGITAKA! - Japan Fishing Tackle Store
