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.

I hate wacky riggin'
why do you say that?
Because there are more effective presentations/lure choices out there. Last summer, on days when I found the wacky rig was working, I stopped pitching it immediatley and started throwing whatever I could think of. I came up with a magical combo that would work whenever the wacky rig would work. Now I dont have to wacky rig :)

Fishlip; I've got extensive experience with the Powerbait Heavyweights. They are incredibly durable and wacky rig well. They skip like a champ too, so they're perfect for dock fishing. I fished them at Amistad last year to reach deep fish (like 40+ feet) on an 1/8oz jighead. When I tried a heavier jighead I snagged constantly; the light jighead coupled with the Heavyweight worm got down fast enough, but not so fast as to snag, and I filled my day 3 limit with it. CL
