Brass Tickers add more noise to a rig because they use brass or lead bullet weights and glass beads to catch bass. Most frequently, the Brass Tickers are placed between the knot that secures the hook or swivel to your line, and a glass bead. Usually, a bullet weight is placed above the bead. When the whole rig is hopped along the bottom or shaken, the Ticker/bead/bullet weight combination creates lots of bass attracting noise, which will cause the fish to focus on your bait. As you can see in the image, the central hole that is bored through the Ticker has rounded and polished edges to ensure there are no sharp spots to damage your line or knot. Try these Pro Tickers on a Carolina-rig or a Texas-rig for more sound and more attention from bass.
