Bass Pro Shops® XPS® Finesse Drop Weight
I use the drop shot system with live bait and it works great. Fishing fast moving water for smallmouth, the weight gets the bait down where the fish are, with a slow presentation. I can change the weight size quickly and easy to attach and remove from drop line.

Works great with one tip...
Drop-shotting is a big part of my fishing. I was shown a trick to do to the weights- using two small needle-nose pliers, put an approx. 30 degree bend in the weight. It doesn't affect the performance of the swivel and the bent weight slides through the bottom hazards easily. Before I did this I frequently lost weights to bottom snags and but since then I haven't lost any. This little trick literally keeps me fishing and the bait in the strike zone longer.

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

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 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.
