VMC Spinshot Drop-Shot Hooks
This is an outstanding product!! I love these - the hooks are brutally sharp out of the box, they work flawlessly and don't tear out of my plastics as I expected. The ONLY reason I didn't give these 5 stars is because the price is kind of steep for terminal tackle.
Still, I will buy more. You get what you pay for, and these work well and minimize line twist - even if they take a little longer to rig.

This item is an excellent idea. I was thinking about doing drop shots but was worried about the tying the knots and the swivel etc...This eliminates the swivel to the hook issue. The line doesn't twist and it held up against 2+ pound small mouth bass. The sharpness of the hook is also great. Setting the hook was easy but difficult to get out meaning it did it's job. One thing I would recommend getting a hook remover as these are small and make it difficult to remove the hook. I would like to see larger hooks though. Not that it didn't do it's job but I would like to use other bait and larger ones at that. If you are thinking about trying drop shotting, get this. It is worth it.

These hooks are very sharp. So far I have had no issues with them. I do worry that when fishing from shore, the weight of the worm will pull the hook under the line instead of behind it. Another reviewer mentioned this, and it makes sense. So this might be better for fishing from a boat with a straight down style rather then shore fishing where the line is at an angle. I would think a salted worm would stop that from happening since it floats and therefore would not drop down.
