Raft has an almost balanced centre of gravity of 43:57. A large jigging motion causes the jig to slowly descend like a leaf. A quick jigging action will cause the jig to ascend rapidly. It has a very simple design and is suitable for all kinds of jigging.
The jig is long, wide and thin so when first place in the water, will descend slowly, but because it is thin, it will begin to accelerate a lot faster. Heavier jigs have a longer floatation time. The descending jig can also be used as a lure too, which is a new way to jig.
