Northland Fishing Tackle Rock Runner Slip Bouncer
This is a winner even in southern waters!!!
I use these on Lake Hiawassee (Murphy, NC) and they work incredible. It is a deep mountain lake with an average depth of 100 feet. Since October the bass and walleye have been in the 30 ft. range. This Bouncer gets my spinner rig down quick and where it needs to be. I've hauled in small mouths, spots and walleye averaging 18-20 inches.
I've even used the Rock Runner with a Berkley Flicker Shad 2" crankbait and it works extremely well in getting the lure down deep. Much better than a bulky deep diver.
The downside is colored/painted weights not available in all sizes.

plastic is weak
The plastic quick change slider is the only weak link in this product.The function of the product is great.

Great Carolina Rig Weight!
This "rock runner" is a great weight for carolina rigging as this very seldom gets snagged and is a great alternative to the Lindy "No Snagg" slip sinker. This product is half the price but yet just as effective. Also this product comes with a line slide that attaches the weight to the line further lengthing your line integrity near the swivel. Overall tried many different weight options with the carolina rig with this and the Lindy being the best by far! If you are a hard core Carolina rig fisherman, you should try this product, you will not be disappointed.
