Rated 5 out of 5 by Stripernut Work Well I don't use a lot of bobber stops, but from time to time it is the way to go. I have bought these before and they have always worked well. February 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by swampjuice Simple I've used these for several years and are much more "user friendly" than other types of bobber stops. You can reel them through the eyes on the rod and they don't interfere with casting and they hold the bobber exactly where you want it and it's very simple to adjust. Goes on the line in about 5 seconds. December 28, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by streek1975 Work great and easy to use. i bought these because I need to keep my night bobber above my rig when reeling in. They do the trick. Go on with ease. December 21, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by LeMat shape isn't best available the egg-shaped rubber does not feed through a spinning reel bail. As long as you are not fishing deeper than the rod length, you are ok, but if it's set deeper than that, you will have to reset the depth every time you reel in. Other brands are better than these.

A:You run your line thru the wire loop, then slide the bead and stopper on to your now doubled line. You then pull the tag end of your line out of the stopper. You can now move the stopper up and down your line!
A:You do not tie it, it is a slip bobber. You run the line down the center shaft . I use a small swivel to stop the bobber from running down to the bait/lure on a leader.
A:I have a number of sizes of these. The small one will take all of the mono and Firewire I have in the house up to 65lb. test
A:It depends on what kind of bobber stop it is.
A bobber stop that is made of line or thread wrapped around the line can fit any size line.
A:I have found that they will work on a highest of 12 lb mono and almost any braid.

A:i think they will probably work something around 6 - 8# test mono(.o11 dia.) without any problem. the smaller the diameter the line, the more likely the bobber will tend to slide around on the line. using larger diameter line just might tear up the stop as you try to slide it into position up the line. not enough weight on the end of the line may cause the bobber stop to bump along the rod guides and shorten your casting distance. a lot of trial and error with getting these to work as intended, but they do get you down to fish without hanging up on the bottom when used correctly. great for using minnows to get to those deep water crappie.
A:You put a bobber stop on your line then a plastic bead, then your slip bobber, then your split shot sinker then your hook.
You slide the bobber stop to the place you want the bobber to be above your hook & bait, this sets how deep in the water the bait will be.
When you cast, the shot, hook & bait sink, the bobber moves up the line pushing the bead up until the bead reaches the bobber stop & can't go any further, the bobber can't pass over the bead so the bead & bobber stay where the bobber stop is and the bobber keeps the bait at the depth you set with the bobber stop.
A:A movable stop is attached to line at whatever depth you wish to fish, with a bead between it and the bobber. You can use almost any kind of bobber as a slip bobber, only requirement is, the line must be able to slide through the fasteners on the bobber. This way you reel in the line until the bobber is close to your rod tip, the bobber stop will feed through your rod guides. You can cast without a bunch of line hanging below the bobber.
