The Bass Pro Shops® XPS® Drop Weight is 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.
these do what they are supposed to do, and that is give you a good dropshot experience

Not "the best"
As a avid finesse fisherman the drop shot rig is a mainstay in my arsenal. A review of this product deemed it "the best ever". If you are a serious drop shot enthusiast you can tell the difference.
(1) Tungsten is far more sensitive than lead:
You will feel more strikes and have a better sense of what the bottom is like with any tungsten weight over a lead one. Although tungsten is expensive it is a far superior material for feel.
(2) Lead ruins fisheries:
There are many companies that make drop shot weights out of steel that are cheaper than tungsten. The "clips" that attach to the line are designed to break free if you snag the weight. Doesn't it make sense to use a material that won't ruin the area you fish if they break off?
In many states lead weights are becoming illegal and steel weights are a great compromise for those who choose not to use lead but don't want to shell out for tungsten.

Drop shot weight
These weights work great. when the fish get shy, throw a drop shot rig in front of 'em. you definetly increase your catch.

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
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!
