Tuning meat rigs

I have been running several brands of meat rigs this year without much success. The only one that has put fish in the box is John King. Yesterday I was watching the action of the atomik and diabolical which led me to believe they are not tuned correctly. They do not roll even behind a big foot spin doctor. Does anyone know how to properly tune one? Also what the proper “roll” would be?

The meat head should have a curve to it. Sometimes giving the meat head a bend or more curve will get it to roll more. I have also noticed more roll if you trim up the meat you are using. I'm using big wienie heads and i've had to trim the larger herring to be a little shorter this year. I've ran meat that rolls twice per second and I've ran it at a constant roll. Both ways have caught fish.  Keep working with it, some days it can be the hot ticket.

Have not been able to find those videos. I am wondering if it must spin like a cut plug

If I were to get into meat rigs, I would go with Musselhead Meat Rigs. Their slogan is "No toothpicks. No tuning. Simply meat-rigging."

I've been contemplating getting into them out of my kayak, but I do fine with my go to stuff and meat would just be one more thing to drag around.

there are some videos on line that go over this.  The trick is the number of revolutions per second.  with a meat rig, the flasher is an attractor and does not add any action.
