I went by his house at the beginning of the year and bought one titanium gig and one stainless. They are both amazing but if you pole your boat or stick a lot of fish on the rocks the titanium gig is worth every penny. Very very light and haven't had to sharpen it yet.

Thanks men,

I have one of his stainless and love it. Flounderslayerman has the titanium and it is indestructable. Bill/Giggability wanted info, he's wearing some giggs out. He would be a great test for their durability with the numbers he puts in the boat.

I might have to try the titanium myself.

I have a 5 prong and a 3 pront titanium. They dont bend when gigging sheepshead. Would get these over the SS, even though IMO the titaniums are too lighweight. I like a little more bottom end weight. Its nothing a little lead wrap wouldnt cure though. I really like mine and the tips done get blunted when giggin flatties over rocks.

I just received two more stainless gigs from Jim.

Best gig made. A bargain at even twice the price.

I've got a titanium 4 prong made from 5/16 round stock. One word for it. Indestructible. Best gig I've ever used.

Hey don't talk-em up too much, anything can be destroyed by some but the Titanium grade 5 is the toughest material I have found yet to use, I also offer them in Surgical SS which is kind of in between the Titanium and standard 304 or 316 SS which most are made from. The Surgical Stainless may be your choice if you want more weight? Check out your Stainless gig, if a magnet won't stick to it, its probably 304 or 316 if a magnet will stick to it lightly its probably better material such as the surgical SS, except Titanium which is not magnetic. If anyone has one of the Surgical SS gigs I would like some feed back on them , they will have SS stamped just to the right of the trade mark CG. And sorry guys that I haven't been on the forum lately, been real busy and if anyone needs a gig please place the orders on my e-mail address [email protected]

Jim, the abuse I've put that thing thru this year is insane and it's still like new.

I have Jims ss and the titanium. Awesome.
I usually give the titanium to kids, cause they tend to stab more rocks, stumps, pier pilings, and concrete boat launches. The titanium is the way to go. My setups spend a LOT of time on the water, more than the average gig handle.
The cane poles are just as indestructible. I can bend them waaay over, to the point I think they are gonna break. They snap back to normal in a minute or two.
Boutwell pole, and Jims titanium gig heads are awesome. Nothing better.
