I have been using cylinder weights for drop shotting they work very well in broken rock.

I like these weights ..They are easy to use, just slip one on the line. no tying . They don't seem to get hung up much , but when they do you only loose the weight not your drop shot rig as well. I will definitely get more in different sizes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Swivel They Work
These weights worked great in an oyster laden area that I fish and an area I could not get into with the boat. I was able to cast them a mile and catch fish. I only had to use two of them during about a three hour period. I do tie a small worthless knot above them just because I don't like losing tackle and it seemed to work fine. Great technique for heavily pressured fish.

I have used for 3/16 to 3/8 but I prefer the 1/4. It gives good feel and tension in calm and windy conditions. High winds I do go to 3/8. And if the fish are easily spooked the 3/16 offers less splash.
That depends on a couple of factors like water depth & line weight.
I personally use 3 weights for normal conditions: 1/8oz, 3/16oz and 1/4oz. Normally I start with the lightest weight I can, as long as I can feel the bottom. As the wind and wave action picks up, I may change to a heavier weight to retain the feel.
that all depends on the current that your fishing in. i have very slow moving current or next to none at times, i use 1/8oz. that way its not a huge weight int he water but yet still heavy enough to carry to the bottom
Tie your hook on leaving a 15-18 inch tag hagging down. I find the palomar knot the easiet way to do this. The higher the weeds on the bottom the longer the tag. At the end of your tag tie a square knot. Slide line through gap in the swivel. Slide weight down to square knot and pull down until line sinches into top of swivel.
Tie a simple overhand knot about 1/2 inch from the end of the line (assuming you are dropshotting and have tied the hook about 8 inches from the end with a Palomar knot). Then you slide the knot through the eye in the line clip and slide it up the clip gently. Remember to wet the line to reduce friction and heat.
Run the end of your line through the little wire after you have tied your hook on up the line. The weight is on the end of the line and the artificial lure is up a ways. You can fish the weight as close as 6 inches from your bait to as far away as 4 or 5 feet depending on how close to the bottom of the lake you want to fish. To secure the weight onto the line, you just snug it into the narrow part of the wire, making sure that you don't pull too hard on the line so as not to damage it. You don't need to tie it on. The pressure of the wire will keep it in place until you need to change its position or it gets hung up on a snag and breaks free.
I was wondering if these come in any type of assortment of different size weights and hooks or just an assortment of weights? I think it would be a great idea. They have them for every other weight, why not these.
