Philly,

I have bucktails in every size from 1/8 oz to 2 oz. They make them bigger but I never have a need for anything heavier since I mainly fish shallow water.

Every tackle shop carries bucktails in various sizes.

I don't fish the reef very often so I don't know what size you would need. I'm sure someone will answer your question though. Good luck.

if you are driftin and the seas aint rockin and rollin you can get away with 3 ounces (some days even 2 oz) to hold bottom, that's if you r driftin

if on the hook, you'll need more weight, but buckies work well and you can get em up to 6 oz like HIT (it) MAN said

i like driftin reefs with cannon ball rigs

I have a variety from 2-4oz that I used at the reef last summer, usually 3-4oz was all I needed to drift the reef, I picked them up at Sterling Harbor, lots of colors to choose from.
