Not the best split shot

by Chuck -

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.

No Spill Dispenser

by Old Tireman -

Switched to these the other year for steelhead and never quit when trout season opened. I was told the dull black color was necessary for steelhead. Love the pinch open, cross cut dispenser top that self-seals. Lot easier than fumbling with plastic bags and zip top seals. Seem denser than the usual run of the mill shot. They can be a dickens to get pinched on your line which seems to want to slip out of the groove as you're reaching for your pliers. And, they're not removable without cutting off hook or lure. I've started carrying all four sizes in the two tubes. One size on each end. More especially, the tubes are refillable with reasonably priced bags.

Great round Split Shot

by Doug - Pin Drifter -

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.

Easy to use

by Snaggin' Pete -

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.

Blackbird shot

by John -

Very good shot. Much heavier and smaller than other types. Stays put very well, but it is a little tough to quickly remove.

Good product with an easy use container.

by WVreels -

This is dark colored splitshot. The container is small and compact. It provides quick access to the product. The only issue I have with them is not being able to easily re-use them.

A simple solution to a classic problem

by lovetofish -

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.

Handy and Practical

by Live2Fish -

Definitely something applicable for wide variety of uses.

Best way to handle your split shot

by leifjohn -

The dispenser works great. You can easily pinch out 1 shot at a time without worrying about dumping the rest.
