What weight size do you use most for t-rigging?

1/4 oz is a good place to start. They also seem to sell out faster than the other weights in my local stores.

I use mostly 3/16, 1/4, and 5/16.

1/8, 3/16 and 1/4 for me

I use a 1/8 to a 3/4 oz. But I have 4 rods that I fish the T rig so I never have to change weights.

It all depends on depth and wind. The deeper the water or higher the wind = heavier weight. I like 1/4 oz most of the time if I can get away with it.

As light as I can get away with, unfortunately sometimes that is 3/4 oz. Usually 1/8-3/8 on normal days but when it's windy or dead calm, I'll go to the extremes.

1/4 by far for me. If I'm fishing (pitching) to laydowns FAST from a boat in say... 5+ FOW, 1/2 oz. and up. Water 10+, 1/2-3/4.

1/4-3/8 most of of the time. Down to 1/32 and up to 1oz if the situation calls for it.

The weights vary but usually 1/16, 1/8 and 1/4.

It really depends on the time of year. During the summer I use heavier weights. In the fall and winter lighter weights.

I try to get away with the lighest weight possible when possible.

And to throw a wrench into your replies, try throwing your plastics weightless and see what happens during the summer months.

Just a suggestion. ;)

And by the way, I use a regular lead bullet weight, pegged.

Sometimes, in a tournament I will go with a tungston. ;)

1/8 oz. unpegged almost exclusively. Anything heavier is jig territory :D

On the spinning rig I will use 1/16 or 1/8 depending on the lake conditions. On the baitcaster I will use 3/16, 1/4, or 5/16.

Yep.

I usually use 3/16 or 1/4, but when the Kansas wind starts up, I will go as heavy as 1 oz. to maintain bottom contact.
