The perfect weight to use in the newest form of finesse fishing. This technique is especially effective for heavily pressured fish. To use, tie knot in end of line and insert through eye, pull up, and you are ready to fish - and you can change weight quickly. Hook should be tied directly on line 18-30" above weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Happyhooker99 easiest weight system on the market
I do not tie a not at the bottom of my line because if the weight was to get snagged on weeds or a rock the weight will slide off leaving your hook and line to be used again with another weight. Leave extra line below the weight so you will be able to adjust the weight to the right height the fish are at.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Stripermaniac Not "the best"
As a avid finesse fisherman the drop shot rig is a mainstay in my arsenal. A review of this product deemed it "the best ever". If you are a serious drop shot enthusiast you can tell the difference.
(1) Tungsten is far more sensitive than lead:
You will feel more strikes and have a better sense of what the bottom is like with any tungsten weight over a lead one. Although tungsten is expensive it is a far superior material for feel.
(2) Lead ruins fisheries:
There are many companies that make drop shot weights out of steel that are cheaper than tungsten. The "clips" that attach to the line are designed to break free if you snag the weight. Doesn't it make sense to use a material that won't ruin the area you fish if they break off?
In many states lead weights are becoming illegal and steel weights are a great compromise for those who choose not to use lead but don't want to shell out for tungsten.
