Have some bobber stoppers but don't know the brand for sure, I think VMC. Bought the size for 15-20 pound line, which is the size I use. Problem is, they slide up or down the line on most casts. Will the next smaller size stop the sliding? For tx rig, I normally use a 1/4 - 3/8 oz tungsten sinker on 17 lb Mason Bass On Line, which is a little thinner than most 17lb line. Another brand that's better for not sliding or need to use 2 stoppers to stop sliding?

Thanks,
Befuddled...again.

I like the academy brand and use 20# sunline sniper. They hold but what I have problem with them is about 1 out of 3 the wire break before getting the stopper on the line and have tried wetting it first and still have problems. Might be ok with your 17#

I've used several kinds and given up on all of them. I've gone back to toothpicks and I'm glad I did.

I tie a piece of rubber band on the line and trim the tag ends off. Cheap, doesn't slip, but easy to slide on the line, and easy to find.

6th Sense are the best in my opinion.

I buy the cheap 30 pack at bass pro and they work fine. If the braid is really slick or using heavier weights I will use 2 of the stoppers.

I have always used the cheapest ones on TW and though breaking wires putting them on was just part of it. Last year I picked up a package of 6th sense because that's what they had at the local tackle shop and it is a world of difference. I won't be using any others from now on.

...I use a very small "clam" weight. Just crimp it on the line and there you go.
Much less $$$$ than bobber stoppers or peg its

Swagger tackle sends me some when I order weights. Don't know the brand but they work better then what I was getting from academy and they ate big enough that they aren't getting stuck inside the weight either. But I have to agree with steez, if you are putting it above the weight you should just peg it, it easier and doesn't require retying.
