Those plaice beads (I think tronix makes them) are good for cone weights 5g+ when trying to imitate sprat they add a little flash in the water when the light hits them. Agm do loads of suitable jigheads or you can buy a mould and make your own. I mostly use the football ones.I do use small cone weights and a bead from hobby craft.
Obviously with off set hooks.
2/0 might be a bit small, I think the ones I use are 3/0 or 4/0 can't tell for sure though as all my weedless hooks get chucked in together, the bead serves two purposes it protects the knot to the hook and causes a rattling noise.Ah I was thinking about making some Texas rigs with the SG bodies. Just ordered some off set hooks wasn't sure what size and went for 2/0's in the end. I have some 5/8oz oval barrel leads I was going to cut in half and use. I was thinking of super gluing the weight to the body once it was all rigged up. Is this not a good move? A bead in between seems the popular thing to do. Is there a practical reason for this or is for more attraction like tom said?
I use 3g 5g and 7g and will go as high as 9g.Looking at buying some of these what weight would be best for sg sandeels and xlayers ?
