This post is a Review of the Parasite Weight and Clip that I wrote and posted on another forum

Maybe you guys havent seen this product yet ... but maybe after reading my review you just may want to try them out ....

I have been using them now for a little over a year .... and I will tell you I will not be using rubber bands or toothpicks again .... That is a Fact .... Not after using this product ....

Here the review for your reading enjoyment .... i hope you like it

** Note if the mods want to move this to another area feel free to do so .... but I thought it fit perfect here under this topic .....

Date : Todays Date 4/13/2007 , Product was used through out the Summer of 2006
Manufacturer : D & W Lure Company
Reviewer : mjcolegrove
Where Tested : Farm Ponds of Pennsylvania

Product Designer : Chuck Ditto .... the Product we can buy today is after four year of research and many , many different designs .......


Introduction: The Parasite Weights and Clips are changing how we fish for Bass as we speak. The Parasite Clip and or Weight , once in place holds the plastic lure in place so it will not move off your hook. The Parasite Clips and Weights will save
Anglers money by saving them lures that normally would have been lost. It also
allows Anglers more time to fish. No more stopping to fix your lure. This product is for everyone that fishes . From Tourney Anglers to the Novice Angler , they all can take to the advantages the Parasite Clips and Weights provide . You wont be sorry that you have either .

The Product : Comes in 4 different classes
the Parasite Clip - is used for a weightless presentation and they come 10 to a pack
the Lead Weight - comes in the following weights : 1/2, 1/4 , 1/8 , 1 , 3/16 , 3/4 and 3/8 ..... weights are in ounces
the Tungsten Weight - comes in 1/2 and 3/16 (ounces)
Painted Weights - comes in the following weights : 1/2 , 1/4 , 1/8 , 1 , 3/16 , 3/4 , and 3/8 (ounces) the paint choices are either Black , Green Pumpkin or Red
Black sizes are 1/2 , 1/4 ,1/8 , 1 , 3/16 , 3/4 , and 3/8
Green pumpkin come in 1/2 , 1/4 , 1/8 , 1 , 3/16 , 3/4 , 3/8
Red come in 1/2, 1/4 , 1/8 , 3/16 , and 3/8
The weights come 4 to a pack .

Whats great about the Tungsten weights is there not harmful to the enviroment .
As more and more States apply laws governing lead use age for fishing products
Tungsten is rapidly becoming more and more used .

First Impressions : I was introduced to this Product in the Summer of 2006 by Doug Cavin . When i first used this product I was impressed from the Get Go.
I thought WoW !!! What an awesome idea. Not only could I cover more water
since I didn't have to stop and refix my bait . But my bait lasted longer. And I caught more fish...... I'm Sold ....... My tacklebox wont be without these again .

Equipment used during the test :

Rod : Rhino Indestructible - model RNS662MW-VMA5
Reel : CS 1000 Challenger
Line : Stren Dura Tuf 10 lb Test

Construction : The Construction of each Product is superb . The Clips are a single piece of Wire . The Weights from my take have been poured over the wire and the seal between the two is complete . I could be wrong but thats how I think they were made ..... Is this a problem , heck no ....... During each Hookup I got the product did not in any way hinder the Hookup .

Durability : I have yet to break one or lose one .... I fish heavily structured ponds
with Rocks , Trees , Stumps .... you name it ..... its in there ......

Design : This product is what it is ..... Designed to help catch fish .... and thats exactly what it does ...... Its a time saver and money saver . Anyone that uses this product will reap from its advantages.

On the Water : The Parasite Clips and Weights are Multi - Functional and serve many purposes ....they are made for Plastics specifically .... I was using a 2/0 hook but I think you can use any size of hook from a Octopus to a EWG ....

Presentations : You can do just about anything with this product . You can fish it weightless by using the Clips . Or if you want to use the Weights you can punch it through a weedbed . Its very useful in all applications .
