Tops for live bait rigs
I have used BP Brass Carolina Weights for nearly 20 years for live bait rigging for walleyes in Minnesota lakes. They seem to attract fish by clinking on the bottom rocks and gravel. With the smooth inner surface they also fray line less than lead. They telegraph bottom content better than lead as well. Be careful if you are using ceramic guides at the tip of your rod. These will smash ceramic. They are also better for the environment than lead.

BPS Carolina weights
Got some of these for carolina rigging (like the product says). They serve their purpose, maybe a little on the heavier side but work. I got the black flavor and they seemed to be good quality. Paint held up pretty good to a days worth of fishing. It is what it is, a 1/2 or 3/4 oz. weight.

Dress them up!
Use a glass or brass bead between them and a swivel on a carolina rig for more noise AND also use a somewhat larger one in front of the weight to make it less likely to hangup in rocks and other debris...try it.
