Bass Pro Shops Rubber Grip Lead Sinkers
easy on easy off
They are perfect for what I purchased them to do. Add a little weight when you need to keep a larger live bait down or to extend a throw some. You just lay the line in the groove against the rubber and twist the rubber 180 degrees and the sinker is attached. Want it back off? Just one more twist and off it comes with no down time or damage to your line like crimp on sinkers do. I love to catfish and these weights are a real time saver.

The No 1 sinkers
I have used these sinkers for well over 30+ years. I think they are the best when it comes to ease of putting on and taking off. I normally use for salt water fishing but have used them at the lakes down here in TX. I am happy to find that Bass Pro has these as Im low and need some more. So off to the store to get some. When Im fishing and they're running hot , I don't need to fumble with another wt when they go on and off so fast at what ever wt i need.

tear the rubber out
i extract the rubber out of these sinkers and use pliers to attach them to hooks on a spinner bait or jig. it works great in the heat of the summer to get your bait down deep in a hurry. i think they should design the same type of sinker but instead of the rubber piece maybe a thin rubber coating on the inside to keep it from sliding on the hook.

Rubber core sinklers unbeatable
Unlike biting down on, or plier squeezes on split shots, these sinkers are easy to attach. And more importantly detach.
Used them for bluefish in saltwater and now found the right size for ready use in fresh water. More specifically our trips up to New hampshire's Lake Winnepesauke.
Can't wait to see what the lake's white perch think? :)
