Drop Shot

Drop Shot weights typically come in two styles, cylinder and ball style. Each style is designed to perform better in certain situations. The main difference in drop shot weights compared to all other weights is the use of a quick release line pinch clip that allows anglers to quickly adjust their hook height by moving the weight closer or further away from the hook. Cylinder style drop shot weights perform best in rock or gravel bottoms since the extended height and smaller diameter of the lead resists snagging better than the ball style. The Ball style drop shot weight was designed for use in sand and mud bottoms and has a much smaller profile since the weight is not spread out like with the cylinder weight. The most common drop shot weight sizes are 1/8, 1/4, 3/8, 1/2 and 5/8 oz.
