Like them or no? If so do y'all use them on all plastics, or just certain baits?

I like them on baits that I don't want to put a lot of holes in and any bait I want to keel weight, such as swim baits.

I have used both, kinda curious if it makes a difference in the way the bait moves/falls.

I use them at times if fishing the top or the middle of the water column.

Prefer a traditional hook for dragging or hopping plastics on the bottom.

Roboworm EZ Shad

One of my favorite baits for a twist lock hook is the Roboworm EZ Shad. This bait really shines this time of year and you can catch some monsters on it. It performs very well on a twist lock hook and it's very weedless. I love swimming this bait around lily pads, grass, shoreline cover, and docks. Most any plastic will work well on a twist lock hook, but I feel like this bait performs the best on one of those hooks.

On Trig the baits tail doesn't seem to float as high with keel weight vs. bullet weight.

I didn't like the way the slip sinker sits on the screw lock hook. I was assuming you were talking about the un-weighted version. You can get them with or without a weight.

I use alot of Owners wistlock Zro wire flipping hooks they worked very well. Loved them on small baits like Netbaits B Bug and Gamblers ugly otter smaller profile baits. Work great on swimbaits as well.

They work great with Rage Craws -- baits last much longer.
