STORM Suspendots and SuspenStrips Weights
Great for tuning!
I bought some of these for tuning my suspending jerkbaits. There so easy to stick on and take off yet they hold strong on the lure. They don't mess up the action of the bait at all and are great for getting that "looking down" effect on my jerkbaits. I've gotten my baits now to literally holding there spot in the water column. Or you could get the slightly sinking effect. All of these are great for cold water bass. Great to have in the boat for tournaments when you want to change the action of a bait on the fly. It's also way quicker than changing hooks out to make them suspend.

suspend dots a must have
From a boat, suspending crankbaits are deadly but rarely suspend straight out of the box. At best they rise to the surface slower than nonsuspending. With these dots or stips on the belly of your crankbait, add just the right amount to make it sit flat when you stop reeling without sinking or rising. Now your ready to start catching, use a stop and go method. Pull hard to get it down in the zone and stop for 10 to 30 seconds and go again. Especially around points and straight up & down rock faces. Stop anytime you get a swing and a miss. Oh yea, be sure to hang on.

Do Not Favor Suspend Dots / Strips
I purchased these to place on a bait which I was going to later have custom weighted, etc.
Once you have any moisture on your hands or the baits, the adhesive is not as good. Further, if you double down on them in the same spot, they will start to fall off. I was not able to complete my testing as they started to come off.
The above said, before you start thinking to hard on it, I was NOT working the bait aggressively. Literally just pitching it, not casting, from the bank just far enough to test the action with gentle pulls of the rod.
Lastly, the adhesive will leave residue on your bait. Luckily this is easily removed by using WD-40 but, still, it is annoying. What this means is that you can add and remove or shift the weights around very easily at all.
At least it's cheap.

A MUST FOR HARDBAIT FISHERMAN
A concept thats been around awhile. The suspend a dot just makes it easier. How a lure suspends depends alot on water density. So you can adjust this by removing or adding dots. You can make lures run a little deeper or reduce the boyancy. I keep a couple of sheets in each crankbait box.
