Bass Pro Shops® XPS® Drop Weights
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 3 out of 5 by coloradofisherdude good weights seem to snag a lot though i use these for drop shotting obviously. they do fine in weeds and some rocks. i have snagged a lot with these in rocks like another reviewer has said. i've never had the eye pull out. using 10lb mono leader on braid line i've never been able to really pull the weight off to save my bait and hook. clipping the tag end short as possible helps but these seems to need a lighter line like 6 or 8 lb. i will continue to use these but i want other shapes for rocks that probably perform better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Zeeker Nice but I bought these last month and they are a bit pricey for what you get, but they work great if your drop shotting. May 14, 2009
Rated 4 out of 5 by Trojan A good weight These weights work great for dropshotting though they do get hung up a bit more in rocks. I would use these on a gravel/sand bottom and use the slender dropshot weights for rocks. May 1, 2009

Details:whats the best weight to use these for a drop shot
A:1/4 oz seems to be best for me. lighter ones when it's more windy makes it almost impossible to feel your bait or weight. these do okay as long as it isn't super windy. when it is i use a 1/2 oz bell sinker knotted on the end. helped me to produce
A:It depends on deep the water is. I get the 1/8 oz. ones for water less than about 8' (as long you're using a light enough rod and reel combo) and then I would get the 3/8 oz. ones for water deeper than 8' (asuming you're not fishing in water deeper than 16' or 18'). Or you could just get the 1/4 oz. ones and fish a little slower in deeper water. I hope this helped. Good fishing!
