Bass Pro Shops XPS Tungsten Dropshot Weights
Safe For Environment
These are excellent for drop shotting as any angler knows it is technique, finesse and the ability to fool those fish that have seen everything made, thats how they became trophies. These are smaller and less visible and are friendly to the environment. I know they cost more but it is a small price to pay to ensure good fishing conditions for future anglers.

Tip for Using
I was skeptical about these when I first tried them. Thought I was doing something wrong because I was loosing more weights than I was catching fish! But then someone showed me that when you tie on your hook to also tie a knot at the end of the tag end of your line where you plan to crimp the weight. Then when you put it on the knot will stop it from sliding. Haven’t lost a single one since! Now these are all I use for Dropshotting.

Yes, the sensitivity is great, but what else do you get with this as opposed to any other sinker. With how often I loose drop shot sinkers, it just doesn't seem economically friendly. If you are fishing on a sand flat or on fine gravel areas, go ahead, but Lindy No Snag sinkers will resist snags in other waters (rip rap, etc). I suppose those cost even more... for drop shotting, you are probably gonna be best off with cheap, bulk sinkers.

Only dropshot weights I use
Best dropshot weights on the market by far. Yes, they are a couple dollars more but the sensitivity you get with these leaves ordinary lead weights in the dust. I have found that I actually get hung up less because these weights are so small for their wieght, I hardly ever loose any even in the biggest nastiest rocks and brush piles. You don't have to tie a knot either. I only fish with tungsten weights now.
