Just pinch a split shot on your hook with pliers

I'm thinking weighted or unweighted wacky poll.

Mustad sells a 3/0 kahle type hook that's weighted 1/32oz. Barlow's used to have them. I use the 1/0 and size 2 hooks a lot. The needlepoint hook sets easy as well.

I have used the mustads in the past but used some of the new Berkely ones and am sold.

When I want a faster fall rate, I pinch a split shot weight 6 to 8 inches above the hook. That allows the worm to fall with a better action between "twitches"..... 2cents

Falcon are the best weedless weighted wacky hooks but they are pricey. Those fusion hooks mentioned above that are on sale at BPS seem like a great option.

I like the VMC weighted wacky hooks. But, keep in mind that a weighted wacky hook ain’t a “wacky rig”, it’s a flick shake rig. Similar, but way more deadly. cheers

Another vote for Falcon

I do something a little different that works very well. I tied about an 12 to 18" leader behind a big swivel. It swims the bait down in a natural action and gets LOTS of bites. Hope this helps. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.

Texas bidness. I don't really like much if any weight on my wacky rigs.

I take a VMC Wacky Weedless 3/0 and place a bobber stopper above a small tungsten weight. Slide the bobber stopper down to hold the weight in place. Allows me to use different weights without buying tons of hooks that I might not use often.

I use a Titan Tungsten 1/4 oz worm weight and a Gamakatsu 1/0 or 2/0 weedless hook on my wacky rigs

Gamakatsu with a BB sized split shot 1" above the hook.
