QuickDrops are the ultimate in dropshot sinkers. Every design detail in this product has a specific purpose. You will feel the bottom more easily, yet you won't snag except in extreme conditions.

QuickDrops are compact and sink straight without tumbling or twisting. The fully exposed swivel allows them to snake over obstructions, and reduce line twist.

Try them and you will see that your dropshotting and dropswimming will be more successful!

I designed QuickDrops because I couldn’t find what I needed anywhere on the market and dropshotting had become an important tool in my tournament arsenal. QuickDrops are specifically designed to give you the same compact size and straight fall of round weights, without the annoying rolling on the bottom that deadens the feel of the bottom. While testing this design, it became immediately apparent that this shape prevents the weight from snagging rocks on the bottom, and even weeds. It was further discovered that the shape is easy to grip and release when making underhand pitches. This makes casting a dropshot rig under docks and low hanging branches possible with pinpoint precision.

Try these weights just once and you will see for yourself the advantage of a teardrop shaped weight when dropshotting.  

QuickDrops also make an excellent choice for Carolina Rigging over gravel or rocky bottoms.  Just tie a barrel swivel between your leader and your main line, and leave about a one-half inch end of monofilament at your swivel knot to attach the QuickDrop. This rig is also dynamite for steelhead and salmon in rivers! You will feel more bites, and get fewer snags.

QuickDrops are tournament grade at an economy price.  QuickDrops storage tip!
