    From this list - I would have to go with the "No Roll Sinkers" - but I also like to use the "Pyramid Sinkers", both in a 1oz to 3oz.

    I use no rolls in current, pencil sinkers or walking sinkers for drifting, and disc sinkers for anchor fishing with no current.

    another one that is a tricky question, it depends on the situation i am in...sometimes i use egg sinker if not that much of a current, sometimes i use a pyramid sinker if i am fishing the CA aquaduct.

    I used to use only egg sinkers, but then I started getting into drifting and making slinky weights for drifting. I use them exclusively now because I get fewer hang ups. I like for my baits to move around some.

    No roll for me in the river. Weights kinda depend on the currents an bait I am using.

    Still experimenting with sinkers. Most often, no-roll sinkers are the ticket
    since I'd be fishing just above the bottom and casting from the bank.
    Using a bobber, I tend to use split shot or small egg sinkers and drift away.

    I use no roll when fishing rivers and either disc sinkers or Egg sinkers when fishing lakes
