Beginner's Gear: Removable Split-Shot Sinker

What sets it apart? 

The Eagle Claw Removable Split-Shot Sinker is a reusable lead weight that comes in seven different sizes. Eagle Claw makes it easy to stock up on this tackle box staple by offering bulk packages, variety packs and smaller, more manageable tackle box friendly packs. The iconic split design makes it easy to change the weight of your rig without retying.

How do I use it? 

This sinker is simple to use because it is made of lead which makes it easy to add or remove weight. Split shot can be added on a straight live bait rig, under a bobber, or any situation where your rig needs extra weight to reach to deeper depths or sink faster in windy conditions. A split-shot rig with a small soft plastic or livebait worm is a great finesse technique for beginner anglers.
