The hook, weed guard and skirt have all been downsized in order to put the Jewel Baits Pro Spider Jig together. Again, the bass are keyed in on crawfish when this bait works so well but they are not in a super aggressive mode and often not really wanting to contend with big baits. Something realistic and less threatening like this little nugget is more likely to get sucked up.
Keeping your bait compact with a comparable trailer selection is important or else you’ll over power the jig and take away from its design and intended purpose. For the size trailers that should be used with this bait, it has a sufficient and well designed trailer keeper, which has also been downsized from what you see on a lot of bigger jigs. No need for a massive trailer keeper as it would just tear through the thin plastic of a smaller trailer.
