Bass Pro Shops Tin Removable Split-Shot Sinkers
no-brainer with kids
I can't imagine going through my house to remove all vestiges of lead and have my grandkids fishing with lead weights and fishing lures. These tin weight seem like the way to go with young ones. I wish more tackle (e.g. weight fwd spinners) was so constructed

reuseabke spliut shot sinkers
I prefer the reuseable over the single use. I take five grand sons fishing with me. Do you know how many line changes etc. Thank goodness I've taught them to do most of their line changing etc.
Its my 3 year old granddaughter and 4 year old great
granddaughter that need help and its a whole lot easier piching off a sinker that trying to pry it open.

Stinker Of A Sinker
With the changing of the laws-Theres no comparison to the old lead sinkers-Lots of States do not allow you to use lead sinkers anymore-But the quickness of biting them on the way we all once did-is now a thing of the past-Because try biting into the new sinkers to close up on your line-you will break a tooth or your jaw-And the cost of these are unreal-Im going to convert over to using nuts instead-Because at $2.99 for 6 medium sized sinkers-Thats crazy-Whats the thoughts from other fisherman on these new sinkers-Before you know it-There going to say if you walk in one place-Then go to another-You can not get your feet in the water in the river or where ever it may be-because you could contaminate the river

I bought a few packs of these split shot for opening day thinking how bad could they be? Well, they don't crimp well and they slide too easily. There is a slight gap at the inner edge that causes this. I've used other "no lead" brands that did not have this problem. I'll use them up but won't buy these again.
