Any Alternative To Round Style Split Shot?

Recommended Posts

I LOVE split shot rigs, I have a 3/4 ft fluro leader tied to braid and I use a split shot and a hook a lot and love fishing that rig. But the normal round style split shot always gets snagged or pulls weeds, do they make a pencil or more streamline weight that can be crimped on or off? I don't want a egg sinker style because I tend to switch weights a lot! Thanks for the help!

I use Mojo brand weights for my split shot/Mojo rigs.

Mojo weights work very well for the split shot presentation.

Water Gremlin makes small bullet style crimp on split shots. The really little ones I think are actually made to be used for pegging your normal bullet weight.

Problem I see is that the OP wants a weight that he can easily change.  Not sure I would even want to do that seeing how crimping the weight on weakens the line ever so slighlty.

Watch the video.  It shows a weight you can easily change without crimping and damaging the line.
