Is this actually a good setup or should I set my own up? That wire line is kinda strange looking.

Still have to tie three knots, so it's not saving you any time, if that's what you're after. I tie my own.

Limits your line moving freely through the weight.
Waste of money.

Buy you some beads and make your own. I don't personally like brass. it is too large for the weight. I use the old traditional one oz lead bullet weight and glass beads. Just don't use glass beads with tungsten weights!

I can't believe a man of your means still uses lead, Ken.

Doesnt save any time and i think they hang up more, also cost more than buying pieces and sliding them on together. I like a brass clacker, but not as big a fan of brass weight...I 1000% prefer lead on a c-rig than tungsten

I think lead is better too. I started using lead bc I was getting tired of loosing a $5 tungsten weight everytime I got hung up and had to break it off. Weird thing is I have caught more and bigger fish since I started using lead weights. It could be coincidence but as long as the bottom is good, I can feel it just the same so I now prefer lead for C rigs

I use those and have a snap tied to the end of my braid. This allows me to use my HW rod for multiple lures. C-rig, Donkey Rig, big cranks, and spoons all rigged up with a short leader and a small swivel on each. I keep several lure setups on a pool noodle and just unsnap when I want to change techniques.

If I could afford 30+ rods then perhaps I might change. So far I'm at 9 rods and waiting for the new reels to hit the shelves

Listen to these guys, make your own. Way fast to setup using a Carolina keeper, if you like those, and a glass bead. I mostly always use a 3/4oz weight.


Where do y'all buy your lead bullet weights 1/2-1oz?
