Customer Reviews
Old Tireman
No Spill Dispenser   (from prior model)
Pros: Very Dense, Don't have to re-seal a bag, no spill, no snag, 4 sizes available
Cons: Can be hard to crimp on, non-removeable
Best Uses: Finesse fishing.
Comments: 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.

Not the best split shot   (from prior model)
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.

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   (from prior model)
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   (from prior model)
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.

The Crystal Avon is designed for fishing in rivers or canals that have a steady low flow. Its crystal main body blends into the water, reducing the chance of being detected by fish. Its sensitivity allows the smallest bite to be detected, yet it does not submerge when following by eddies. Differentiation between a bite and a snag is very easy with the Crystal Avon, a feature that a foam float cannot deliver.
