Bass Pro Shops XPS Finesse Weights
I bought these as a replacement for egg sinkers used for freshwater striper fishing. Blowout has always been a problem for the deep-drop lines while bump trolling for the fish, and the streamlined design of these sinkers really made a noticeable difference. I intend to buy more in larger sizes to use to fish the tidal currents in the Florida Keys next spring. Based on present experience they'll not only work fine in tidal currents, but also should hang up less in reef rock and coral.

Good design, holes too rough and small
The slender design is great for Carolina rigging on rocky bottoms. The dowside is that the holes where the line passes through sometimes needs cleaned out as it is small and occassionally rough. I kind of worried about it damaging the line. No break-offs yet!

Great For Finesse
I use these for a quick and easy light weight Carolina Rig for finesse baits. They work great.

Great For Different Types of Rigging
I bought some of these weights in the 1/16 ounce size, and was impressed. This was another great BPS product that exceeded expectations. The slim, cylindrical profile allows it to easily slip through cover and rocks, while the large hole is easy to rig and peg with and does not fray or damage line. These are cheaply priced weights, and I know I will be buying more in other sizes.
