Rated 5 out of 5 by SkeeterTX HIGHLY RECOMMENDED I bought these in lieu of keeping an inventory of factory/permanent weighted hooks...saves cost. They work great. Put them on any hook. They are removable/reusable. April 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Coefficient13 good idea Why not get these in a few sizes and be able to decide weight and balance on your tubes for yourself? Threaded through on a hollow soft plastic craw bait and he's never worked so well. April 28, 2011

Rated 4 out of 5 by ImaNobody Great in situations You need a little added weight to get your plastic down or to make your swimbait stay upright, these will do it. Different weights for different situations. I can only think of two downfalls with these, and those are, once on a worm hook, you can't really get your plastic back off over the weight. If a fish tears up your plastic and you need to rehook it, you need to remove the weight, which brings me to my next downfall, they do not come off all that easy. I recommend these, for sure, but I also recommend that if you put one of these on, and do not want it permanent, attach it to the hook gingerly. Then if you need to get it back off, I have had luck by taking my fishing pliers and squeezing the weight from the side. July 1, 2010

A:You can, but it is not all that easy. I, personally, attach these to my hook by squeezing it on, with my pliers, in two spots, and lightly, just enough to keep it where you want it. Then to remove it, I squeeze the ends of the weight with my pliers and kind of twist it off.
It always works for me, but the next step, I have not figured out, yet, and that is after removing them, the slot that the hook is to fit into is a little small, and I need to come up with a way to widen it back out as the heavier weights are pretty thick and stiff.
A:Yes, but it is difficult. However that is good because other pinch weights slide around on the hook a lot. These when properly applied have a tendency to stay put and other pinch weights don't. I would like to have a 3/4 oz. and a 1oz. to penetrate hydrilla which occurs periodically in the lake I fish and also during the summer when the bass go deep.
A:There are different weights, they are listed on the site where you order from.
