Bass Pro Shops Carolina Weights
I WAS SHIPPED WRONG PRODUCT
TO START ON A POSITIVE NOTE, THE BRASS COLORED BRASS WEIGHTS ARE AN EXCELLENT HIGHLY RECOMMENDED PRODUCT,HOWEVER, I HAD PLACED AN ORDER FOR 2 PKGS OF 3/4 OZ CAROLINA BRASS WEIGHTS SPECIFICALLY MENTIONING I NEEDED THE BRASS COLORED ONES NOT THE BLACK. THE ORDER ARRIVED THE NIGHT BEFORE MY BROTHER"S FINAL BASS TOURNAMENT OF THE SEASON ONLY TO DISCOVER THEY WERE BLACK NOT THE BRASS WE NEEDED TO COMPLETE THE RIGS. I HAD PICKED UP RED BEADS AND BRASS TICKERS A FEW DAYS EARLIER AT BASS PRO IN TORONTO BUT THEY WERE OUT OF STOCK ON THE BRASS COLORED BRASS 3/4 WEIGHTS SO I ORDERED DIRECT..... UNFORTUNATELY THEY WERE OF NO USE TO HIM AND NO TIME TO REORDER THE PROPER ONES.

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.

these weights make a nice sound in the water but if you fish them with beads especially glass they will break or crack your beads which will fray your line and cause you to lose your fish or your whole rig. my advice to you is to use bps lead bullet weights with bps glass beads.
