I really don't know. With the cost of tungston weights as they are they'd be some real 'spensive baits. They'd probably come with some sort of insurance policy against loss.
Tru-Tungston has some jig heads (shakey heads). Run a google search and let us know what you find.
3D, It wasn't a trick question.I have some, I know one is a Mark Pack signature jig and another is a BPS jig, I have used Outkast tungstun jigs before,I was just wondering if you used them.I can't remember who makes the Mark Pack jig, but it is a pretty good jig, just thought you would know of one I haven't used.

I've tried a lot of different jigs but have never tried a tungston. I have found a couple lead jigs that I really like so I continue using them.

I didn't get into the tungston weights due to the cost and the fact that I break off a lot of baits. I flip baits into nasty areas and lose a lot of stuff. I recently tried the DB Flippin weights but lost 5 very quickly due to knot breakage and at $4.99 a pop it got real expensive.

When jigging is it ok to tie directly on to a braid? or do you guys use a leader?

Do not be afraid to tye directly to any lure using braid. I will say that I use the Uni knot and so far since I started using the uni knot I have never had a jknot slipp.

Yeah, for jigging, tying directly to the line is fine. When I use braid for other things I always use a fluoro leader.
