Missile Jigs Head Banger Hits the Ground at Classic

Salem, Va. – February 19, 2016 – Missile Jigs and Mike Iaconelli have collaborated again for a new jig that will be released at the 2016 Bassmaster Classic. Building on the success of the hot, Ike’s Mini Flip jig, the new jig is called Ike’s Head Banger jig. The unique head is designed to be used like a football jig but comes through cover unbelievably while it bangs its head on the bottom. The release at the Bassmaster Classic will be from a limited initial run with most orders going out later in March.


“Mike is one of the best jig fisherman in the country and he knows what he wants in a jig,” says, John Crews.  “This collaboration eliminates the need for football jigs because it works so much better. It is amazing!”

Ike’s Head Banger will come in 3 sizes including ½, ¾, and 1 ounce. The ½ ounce has a suggested retail price of $4.99. The larger ¾ and 1 ounce sizes will retail for $5.99. Each size will come in 6 colors: Green Pumpkin, Bamer Craw, Candy Grass, Bruiser, Brown Purple Passion, and PB&J.

The release at the Bassmaster Classic is the perfect platform to show this new and innovative jig to the bass fishing world. There will be Ike’s Head Bangers for sale in the Dick’s Sporting Goods booth and the Missile Baits/Jigs booth. In addition to the new jigs in the booth, Missile Jigs will have Iaconelli autographed Missile Jigs hats, Mini Flip t-shirts, Missile Baits boat carpet decals, Sun Shields, and other products for sale.
