lean and mean these drop shot weights work very well.
I like to bend them in a banana shape which I thinks helps them from hanging up on stuff.

I like these weights. I bend them a little like a banana and they will bounce off obstacles on the bottom.

PTL did a nice job bringing in more terminal tackle this year. The drop shot weight's work well, with the tight little spot at the top to wedge your line in. The weight's are smooth and free of burs/sharp edges. Also, much more fishable the cylinder shape is as apposed to a round drop shot weight, 10x easier bringing it through gravel and rocky areas. Tie a little knot once the line is wedged in, helps from loosing the weight while fighting a fish!
So you like drop shotting eh? And when you're drop shotting, you prefer a cylindrical drop shot weight because it doesn't get hung up as much eh? And you're thinking I'm Canadian because I use the word eh a lot, eh? Well actually I'm not, but some of the Canadian lingo from our northern friends has rubbed off on me (you have to admit, it's a catchy little word). I am however a big fan of cylindrical drop shot weights though, which is why we offer them on our site. What you see in the product image is what you get…a lean cylindrical drop shot weight that's great for multiple types of bottoms and cover. Period.
8 per pack.
Unlike many avid drop shotters that prefer to drop shot with the lightest weight possible for the depth and conditions, I prefer a little heavier. The reason I prefer heavier over lighter is because when you give your rod tip little wiggles to give action to your bait, the weight itself will move as well (this happens more than you think when casting a drop shot rig). I like a heavier weight because I want the weight to stay in the same spot as I do my little wiggle thang. This way I can keep the bait in the strike zone longer. Plus the added weight allows me to cast my rig a country mile. For example, when most people would use a 3/16 or a 1/4 oz. drop shot weight, I'll use a 3/8 or 1/2 oz. in the same conditions.
