Pros: dark color, Doesn't fall off, Easy T o Handle, Lead is better than tin, Quick access container
Best Uses: float fishing, Nymphing, Centerpin fishing, Shot spacing under float

 Not the best split shot
Pros: dark color
Cons: small, Tough to reuse, Slit for line is small, "hard" lead
Comments: Split shot is smaller that I anticipated and the slits for your line are very small. I would recommend the Thill or Water Gremlin and not the Blackbird.

 A simple solution to a classic problem
Pros: Easy To Handle, Easy To Store
Best Uses: Fresh Water, Nymphing
Comments: Its a simple solution to an age-old problem of handling split shot on the river. The dispenser doles out one or two split shot at a time, as you need it. No more taking out three to use two because I'm going to drop some.

 Easy to use
Pros: Easy To Store
Cons: Limited Use
Best Uses: Deep Water, Fresh Water, Salt Water, Trolling, Shore Casting
Comments: These sinkers are easy to put on the line but hard to remove if you pinch them hard enough so they do not slip. I suggest that you put them on just above a knot so they can't slip down the leader, then pinch them just hard enough so that they will not fall off. This way they can be removed without too much difficulty.

 Great round Split Shot
Pros: Easy To Store, Easy To Handle
Best Uses: Fresh Water
Comments: This shot is great for shot lines. Heavy shot on top and lighter shot working your way down the shot line. When troting your float it keeps your fly bait or jig ahead of your float. Giving it a natural drift for Steelhead. Also it does not twist line due to its roundness. GREAT PRODUCT.
