Default "Fly fishing" split shot really sucks

Well, this is pretty self-explanatory. Anyone else use normal split shot like I do? I'm talking about the gremlin stuff that is actually large enough to sink your rig quickly (and not just 1/2 through your drift -- which is worthless).

Usually when I'm nymphing I want to get not only deep eventually, but deep as quickly as possible. Usually more weight is required than can really be mustered with those little tiny shot from fly shops. I hate that stuff . You know, the rotary container stuff.

Who came up with that stuff anyway? Some of those sizes are so small that they're completely worthless. I don't think you could sink a #24 brassie with it.
