These Kwik-Change Egg Sinkers were originally designed by Fox for use when pike fishing but I now use them for lots of different situations and species. The really small ones are great for trotting fast deep swims with heavy Chubber floats as they get the bait down quickly and keep it down. I also use them when inline legering for chub and barbel. Many years ago I used to use a spiral Jardine lead on a trace to get a pike lure to sink deep, these are a huge improvement as they lock above the swivel and avoid the risk of kinking the trace. Because the silicone locking sleeve and centre stalk are a universal size, its a 5 second job to change the size of your weight without breaking down your rig. I never go fishing without a few of these on my tackle box or a pocket on my rucksack. They are not cheap but I can honestly say I have never ever lost one during a tackle breakage - so they are a worthwhile investment.
Fox have brought a lot of innovations to fishing tackle and this has to be one of the better ones.
