Precision balance is the key to Slug-Go's unique, erratic action, and Lunker City Insert WeightsTM -- often called "nail weights" -- are the key to maintaining that balance while adding weight to reach deeper into the fish's world or tune the lure's action to specific conditions. Ribbed design ensures that the weight will stay right where you put it, and they are soft enough to be trimmed to size with any line clipper.
Internal weighting allows the angler to balance his lure to achieve a specific result. If the desire is simply to make a Slug-Go® work a little deeper, or to offset the effect of a breeze, placing the weight near the center of the lure -- just behind the hook -- works best. Inserting the weight at the tail of the lure -- as in the lower illustration at the left -- causes it to sink tail first. Tail down also means nose up, so when you twitch a tail weighted Slug-Go® it's easy to make it jump out of the water and skip across the surface like a terror-stricken baitfish.
InsertWeightsTM are soft enough to trim as needed with any line clipper. This can simplify the process of balancing the lure, because it negates the need to put the weight into the lure lengthwise. Many top pros place the weights crosswise (then trim them to fit) to achieve proper balance without distorting the lure.
