These are a poor choice if you're looking for split shot that can be used more than once. I know split shot isn't supposed to last forever, but the very first time you remove one of these it will be useless after that. The 'hinge" part is so soft that before the mouth of the split shot opens back up you will have smashed the two hinge sides together. I don't know if it's how they're made or what, you would think all split shot is more or less the same, but I have re-used other brand name split shot several times before the individual shot is smashed and useless, with these BassPro split shot they get smashed the first time. Stay away from them.

terrible split shot
The quality of this split shot is awful. I have tried it in multiple sizes and in all cases the slits are not cut properly which makes crimping them on the line difficult. Additionally, the molded ridge in the center of the slit does not hold on the line well. I am constantly having to crimp the split shot more to keep it from sliding on the line, which typically results in a flattened out split shot that can't be removed from the line. I've never had these problems with Water Gremlin split shot. I'll stick to that whenever possible from now on.

They do the job
The weights do their job... they are easy to use. They just arn't worth $4.00. Way to expensive

Depends on claritity and depth of the water Always go as light as possible, experiment to see what the fish tells you Some time a small split shot will work better than a heavier one that gives YOU a better feel of the botom, but if they want a slow drop you have to back off the weight. Rule of thumb use as little weight as possible. Wind can make a big difference in casting and keeping slack out your line so you can see any movement OR LACK OF MOVEMENT in you lineor If somethig is different SET THE HOOK
Depending on how much weight you need, I would actually recommend using smaller sized egg sinkers for this application. That way you don't have to worry about them falling off. As far as keeping them stationary on the line i use a wooden toothpick inserted in the hole with the line, and you can adjust as needed. Hope this helps.
