I prefer 7oz. Like said color really doesn’t matter. If kingfish or sharks are around rig with 12” of cable. Good luck.

If you're using them for snapper, they don't care if they're purple or any other color. Us the appropriate weight to get to the bottom quickly in the current and try tipping them with squid/chunks of bait and you don't have to do much else. Snapper aren't really finicky. I did watch a show today where a guy used a 130 Halco swimbait as a jig and absolutely killed the SOW snapper with it. He used single hooks versus trebles. I'll be trying that this year too.

Interesting, were they in Florida by chance?

7oz for general jigging. White/Blue, Pink/Chartreuse, or Red/White.

3oz and 5oz for weedlines / Mahi, trolling, etc

The 3-5oz will be difficult getting it down deep enough in any decent current

We only used them dropping over structure to discourage smaller fish from bait stealing. We use the largest one and tip with whole baits. Typically not as many bites as others using straight cut bait, but most fish caught are much larger.
