Mustad O-Ring Tool

The Mustad O-Ring Tool raises your efficiency for one of the most effective techniques on the water. No more messing around trying to get O-Rings onto worms with your hands. Simply place your favorite soft plastic into the tool, then slide the O-Ring into place, it’s that simple. Made to work hand-in-hand with Mustad Wacky O-Rings, the Mustad O-Ring Tool is a must-have for wacky rigging soft plastics.

Includes: 1 tool; 10 O-Rings

Mustad Tungsten TitanX Nail Weights

Mustad Tungsten TitanX Nail Weights are a must-have for serious finesse anglers. Molded with heavy ribbing to provide a firm grip inside soft plastics, the Mustad Tungsten TitanX Nail Weights can be inserted into any of your favorite soft plastics to change the rate of fall and give your lures a different action to trigger more bites. They also feature a high-quality tungsten construction, which makes them more compact than their lead counterparts so that anglers can add more weight to smaller soft plastics without affecting the profile of the bait.

Mustad Tufline XS Fluorcarbon – 25 yards/8 pound test

X-tra smooth and X-tra sensitive, Fluorocarbon XS transmits information from your lure to the rod better than any other fluorocarbon line. Extra strong, Fluorocarbon XS delivers solid hooksets at extending distances while maintaining exceptional abrasion resistance. Virtually invisible underwater, XS is the go-to line when targeting pressured or skittish fish

How to Rig/Fish

The Neko rig is a relatively new phenomenon in the bass community. Basically, it’s a weighted version of a wacky rig with a weight inserted into just one end of the soft plastic, giving the bait a unique action as it falls and allows it to stand straight up once it hits the bottom. The Neko rig is quickly becoming a staple for many pros and weekend warriors alike for one reason – it puts fish in the boat. Kevin VanDam provides a complete breakdown of his Neko/wacky setup in the May epsiode of Unpacking with the Pros!
