Ken Iyobe’s Shooting Ball
Designed by Pro Angler Ken Iyobe, this finesse football jig’s head shape makes for a stable position once it makes bottom contact. The hook eye is embedded into the mold to reduce the chance of bottom snagging. The shank on the fishing hook provides a double keeper system, upper and lower, to hold plastics securely. The monofilament weed guard is just the right tension for reducing snags but not impeding the hooks ability to penetrate the fish. Hayabusa – the pride of Japan – has been manufacturing uncompromising, high quality hooks since 1958.

Ken Iyobe’s Shooting Ball – Football Shakeyhead Jig
Pro Angler Ken Iyobe designed the Ken Iyobe’s Shooting Ball for serious recreational and tournament bass anglers. Round shakey head jigs are effective tools for locating hard-bottomed areas holding largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, and spotted bass. However, football jig heads, like the Shooting Ball, tend to cover more surface area and transmit compositional changes. This entire process identifies important structural and cover changes where bass frequent. Using soft plastic craws, soft plastic creature baits, or soft plastic artificial worms with Ken Iyobe’s Shooting Ball produces fantastic results, aiding in catching tournament-worthy five-fish limits in a timely, effective manner. However, don’t hesitate to experiment with unconventional soft plastics while using this shaky head football jig.
Made of forged black nickel material, with a tighter, shorter weed guard, Ken Iyobe’s Shooting Ball screams of unbelievable durability. When a traditional shakey head jig simply will not work as well as a football jig head, bass fishermen turn to the Shooting Ball for dragging, hopping, or stroking movements to provoke largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, and spotted bass into a feeding frenzy. Its durable weed guard, too, allows bass fishermen to catch bass in cover-holding areas. Bass fishermen looking for a smaller version – for a more finesse-like presentation – should consider purchasing Ken Iyobe’s Baby Shooting Ball. Though bass fishermen can find similarly conceived fishing hooks, Hayabusa ensures that this model outperforms the competition.
