Aptly named after its shape, the ball sinker is arguably the most popular style sinkers used by recreational anglers.
Specially designed for running sinker rigs, the ball sinker provides you with added mobility and flexibility for a rich fishing experience.
Instead of having a fixed point in the sinker like the regular ones, the ball sinker comes with a hole through the whole sinker. This hole can be used to run your main line through it, thus allowing for more flexibility.
Commonly the ball sinker is placed running straight to the hook, or preserved for running through the main line above any given swivel connection.
The biggest advantage of using ball sinkers is that the bait can move quite freely in the water.Giving you the most flexible bait positions possible in any given fishing conditions
