O-Wacky Tool I PURCHASED THIS TOOL BASED ON WHAT OTHERS THOUGHT. I'VE ONLY HAD A CHANCE TO USE IT ONCE, BUT IT PAID FOR ITSELF THE FIRST TIME IN SAVING RUBBER WORMS. USUALLY ONLY GOT 1 FISH PER WORM, MAYBE 2 IF I WAS LUCKY, BUT CAUGHT 3 ON THE SAME WORM AND CASTED IT NON-STOP FOR ABOUT 3 HOURS WITH NO EFFECTS TO THE WORM AT ALL. USUALLY IN THAT AMOUNT OF TIME I WOULD HAVE WENT THROUGH A HALF OF BAG. WISH I WOULD'VE BOUGHT 1 SOONER. May 10, 2011
O-Wacky Tool Review A simple cost effective way to save money on worm baits. November 13, 2013
O Wacky Tool I saw a video from a link off Lady Evelyn Lake - Island 10 Resort. The fellow was demonstrating how versatile this tool was. I immediately logged on Bass Pro website and ordered the tool and extra o rings. I tried them as soon as I received in the mail. Wow! They worked exactly like the video. Only drawback is that the rings did not work as well on the smaller diameter worms like for a dropshot rig. Straight Senko worms were fine. August 8, 2011

A: 
The O ring goes around the worm and the hook goes under the ring. This actually exposed *more* of the hook to the fish during a hook set resulting in more success.

A: 
The O ring does not impede setting of the hook. In fact if anything I would say it improves the performance of setting the hook as more of the hook is exposed.

A: 
The hook point goes into the fishes mouth and the worm gets pushed up the line with the o ring holding it on. No interference whatsoever. Just make sure you hook the o ring only as if you bury it in worm it may bunch up and interfere. The ring will hold the worm on.

A: 
place a large (size 1 or 1/0) wide gap or circle hook under the ring, but not through the worm. I set the hook by reeling, and most fish are caught in the side of the mouth.

A: 
The idea is that the O ring goes up the hook and up the line with the worm still on. So it gets out of the way during the hook set. My issue is that with the O ring, your hook is parallel to the worm and not perpendicular which does make it a little harder for a good hookset. If you are not worried about spending the few extra bucks, then fish without it. I am not comfortable using this tool.

A: 
The o-ring is on the worm. So the hook slids under the o-ring or between the o-ring and the worm. The o-ring WILL NOT interfer with the hook at all. In fact the o-ring allows more of the hook to be exposed rather than if you hooked through the worm itself.
Together with the Gamakatsu Wicked Wacky hooks (they have a weed guard) I was able to land this 8.4 pounder.

It depends on the girth of the soft bait you are using. I found it much more simler with this tool. It only takes a second.

Very hard to put it on the thicker style senko worms especially the 5-6 inch ones. The tool is so easy and will pay for itself very quickly with the worms you save from being thrown off.

A: 
Get the tool. It's cheap. I noticed that the O ring is very tight on a real Senko which will damage the worm when running it up the worm. I notice this when I take the O ring off, that the color of the worm actually changes because of the stress of the O ring pulling off, and also the action decreases because the worm has been stretches out while pulling the O ring off.

you probably could put them on without tool, but it's simply a matter of convenience. for the price of a value meal at your local drive thru, it's worth not having to fidget with those things = more time fishing!

You will run the risk of tearing or streching the worm by trying to roll the o-rings on. Get the tool. Once you use it you'll be so glad you did. I can do a pack (6) senkos in a minute with the tool.

These will work on any wacky style worm. They work best on thicker worms though otherwise the ring is too loose and you will frequently loose your worm and the ring.

As long as the bait is about 1/4" thick the O ring can fastened on to it. If it any size thinner or wider it won't likely fit.

You wrap the o-ring around the "band" of the senko, then insert your hook between the o-ring and the worm. The hook remains exposed.

A: 
You don't put the hook into the bait - you slide the hook between the o ring and the bait thus lessening the chances of your bait being torn/ripped by the hook during use......makes a wacky rig last a lot longer.

hook it through the o ring only!! when a bass takes it and you hook up the o ring and lure will slid up the line while fighting the fish. When the fish thrashes its head, instead of ripping the lure off the line, the o ring takes the pressure off the lure, thereby saving the lure.

A: 
You slide the hook through the O-ring and if you're careful it doesn't go int the bait at all. Avoid hooking the worm so as to not tear up your baits... which is the purpose of the tool!
