Any one try the Okeechobee Rig to fish the heavy grass and weed mats? How effective is it?

Thanks guys

Bought some packs of them back when I first got back into fishing, not sure where they are anymore & I never put any time on the water with them. They should come through the slop pretty good, with the parasite weight at the bottom of the bait. I might have to see if I still have them & give them a go when the weeds take over.

I prefer punch rig over the Okeechobee rig, I feel I get better hook sets.
