SB: How do you like the brass weights? I have been useing a lot of tungsten lately, but it is too costly to use in some 'high loss' applications and I have been considering brass or steel as an alternative to lead. Tom
I mostly chase the smaller eater size cats. I like the brass so much better than lead slip sinker weights. I don't ever have to worry about line dig'n problem on the lead. So far it's mostly just 1 once weights. The brass are more sensitive in the rocks and log areas, since I often target structure type fishing. I think they work better for not snagging as well. It's a harder material so less hangging up on bottom structure.
If I have a need for 2-4 oz weights, that gets the sliding rig and the pyramid weights.
