You will find that the JDM or standard Japanese models are the ones that rust - they have always been high carbon steel. While this means a sharper and harder steel they will be subject to surface rust. The Australian models have stainless barbs as the Australian market prefers them - they are not as sticky sharp or as strong but they dont rust.

Personally I prefer the high carbon versions.

If you get a jig that is starting to rust I have found that putting vinegar in an old spray and wipe bottle and giving them a quick squirt when I see surface rust spots and it cleans them up. If left wet in a jig bag or box they will be cancerous as fu#k and rust up like an old datsun.

I dont doo much special - I have a piece of pool noodle in the boat that hang the jigs on when I have used one - they get a light spray at car lovers with the fresh andthen I drive home - by the time I get home they are dry and I put them away. If they are not dry when I get home (Rain or close to home when I wash the boat) I just take the pooll noodle and hang it in the garage to dry before putting them away. I find it rare that I get anything other than surface rust but have had a few that I have replaced.
