Do the gigs that you are looking for have the barbs cut into them or does the thread act as the barbs? I seen the video of the guy in Texas using gigs made from 3 lag bolts but I wasn't impressed with their ability to hold a larger fish.These are the ones that I use and I have had them for 8-10 years and never had a problem.

Nope I had to make mine. But it's was worth every bit of work it took ( not much at all) when I gig one and put it in the boat and never worry about it coming off.oke

Like these. They didn't get washed good the last time went ( 2 wks ago ) so they a showing a little rust.

A few jabs in the sand and few fish and they will shine right up

BTW They are over 10yrs old.









They are not the prettiest things ( welding with old SS rods ain't very easy when your not a welder)

9.75....Yes.....like those. I've never used one, but heard you can't hardly shake a flounder off of one of them. They are ugly, but I bet they work. I don't know shit about welding so making my own ain't gonna happen. I think I got a line on one.

5 prong.....Those are nice. What I use now is similar, but 3 prong SS. I don't lose one very often, but it does happen.
