I have used one similar and it works great. Kinda hard to knock it if you haven't tried it.

Once the O ring is in place you just run the hook under the o ring and not through the bait (saves the bait from being destroyed). On most hook-ups the actual bait (senko) will slide up the hook and line and stays out of the way.

I saw on a bass show the guy said the pros use rubber bands from braces...you can go to an orthodontist and get them for free...lets you reuse the same senko many times before it is destroy...

and thanks for the explanation Chief!...

When I pitch around docks back home I use a 1/16th oz jig with a wide gap to get it to sink a little faster sometimes. A Owner Mosquito Hook in #1 size is a great Wacky rig hook for Senkos which are heavy enough on their own merit and don't need to be weighted.
