These from LFT work well for Senko type stick baits hooked wacky style and help the baits last longer and increase hookups same as using an o-ring: https://www.basspro.com/shop/en/lak...1evP3gKZrCWSUsK7zQwALXvjWS4aAq6fEALw_wcB

I just use gamma weedless and pinch different sizes of split shot on the shank depending on the fall rate I want

The cheaper VMC are great. I buy 10 packs of the 1/8oz at a time.

I quit using those even having a 2 inch tag below the hook with a weight on it will make the worm drop straight down vs pendulum towards ya..

I use these hooks, I had a whole bunch of different hooks and got on a good wacky bite earlier this year and went thru my box trying them all over a 4 day period of 20 plus fish a day and these were by far the best performers.

I use shrink wrap around the worm then hook just thru the wrap and a little bit of worm for the best action.

If you want the extra feel of tungsten, try these. Great stout little hook and very good price for tungsten. Caught my PB (11lbs) on one this past spring!

How does added feel help on a wacky rig? It isnโ€™t a bottom contact presentation.

Check out the Stanley T- wacky jig....The longer shank of the 3/0 hook and tear drop shaped head increased my hook-ups big-time..๐Ÿ‘

I fish it flick shake style a lot of times. Prefer smaller profile as well since these lakes are so pressured
