Charlie Brewer's Slider Heads - Pro Series Spider
Defective Slider Heads
I have been using sliders for over 15 years and have been very satsified. I recently purchased two packs each of the 1/8 and 3/16 slider heads. The 1/8 slider heads were defective. Each of the two packs (8 total) were incorrectly molded. Instead of the hook exiting in the center of the lead head, it exits at the top. This prevents the worm from aligning correctly with the head. The 3/16 heads were fine. Since all eight of the 1/8 were defective, I assume there is a quality control issue with the manufacturing. I notified both Bass Pro Shops and Charlie Brewer Slider Co. of the problem. If you are planning on ordering the 1/8 heads, I would wait until the problem is corrected and the defective heads replaced.

I have been using Charlie Brewer Sliders for more than 4 years. Great product. I do a great deal of Walleye and Bass fishing. The Sliders work very well with plastic worms as they do with 4" Grubs casting. An extremely versatile jig head.

Great for working grass flats and potholes
This is without a doubt my favorite jig head. It works so well with Gulp 3” shrimp and D.O.A. 3” shad tails that you would think it was designed for them. When I lived in Illinois I used the regular slider hooks, fishing the rivers for smallies and walleye. The best thing about them was that they didn’t get snagged in the rocks like other jig heads would.
Now that I live in Florida I’m so happy that Charlie Brewer came out with the pro series because the regular Slider hooks were not strong enough for Redfish, trout, and snook. The pro Series is strong enough, doesn’t rust or corrode in saltwater, and is fairly weedless. Even when working around floating grass.
Couldn’t be happier with this product.

Ive been using slider hooks for finesse fishing with worms for as long as I can remember. They work just as good, actually even better then a bullet weight and a plain hook. My only trouble is when this product was shipped to my home, all the hooks were out of the plastic package, then I called and BPS sent more, and they were still out of the package. A great product nonetheless though!
