I haven't had issues with the spinshots but heard issues with the VMC suresets.Haven't had any issues with the vmc drops hot hooks. The double knot tying is a pain in the arse. I have noticed that gamagatsu came out with their own version that seems to be a more user friendly design (less knot tying, similar to the DS weight at the bottom of the swivel). I haven't seen them in gander mtn yet but will be picking up a pack to test next time I'm buying.
Right on!!!I use Spin SHots for fun/pre fishing, but like joe p said, they take too much time to rig. Add in the fact that you're out on big water, often times the bow is rocking, and it's even more time consuming. The rest of the time, the Gam. slip shot hooks, or Owner mosquito hooks work great. takes two seconds to tie a Palomar, run the tag through, clip on a weight, and drop it over the side.
