Lets hear who perfers what in this & that condition. Who uses sinker slides? I started using them last year & for the most part I really like them. I think it's great to be able to add or take off weight w/ out redoing your whole rig. To me sinker type isnt as important as it is to some people. I guess my favorite is "no roll" sinkers, but I will use anything! Last year while making some no rolls I broke my last core pin. I tried thinking of other items to use & came up w/ a cotter pin. I now rarely use the no rolls w/ out the cotter pin. This way allows me to use my no roll sinkers w/ my sinker slides. I have never heard of anyone doing this before. What I do is spread the cotter pin a little, then put it in the hole that the core pin would fit into.
