I have used these for carolina rigs for surf fishing, deep sea fishing, catfishing, and even some of the smaller sizes for trout. They literally work for everything as long as you rig them right and know how much weight to use. Very user friendly and do not chew up your line like clamp on sinkers do. Freedom of movement on the line means fish will not feel the weight right away, giving you more time to set the hook. Highly recommended!
Most egg sinkers are the same simple concept. So with that being said, my rating for this product is based on availability,and quantity. No more driving from store to store, hoping they will the sizes and quantities needed. At Cabelas that is never an issue.
