Slip corks work by letting line slip through them until the line comes to a stop. Usually this stop is a tie-off or knot tied to the line which is movable. I don't use skip corks for jigs because I use 16th oz jig heads and they tend to be too light to draw the line through the cork, even with 6 or 4 pound test line. However, they are good for using minnows when you use enough split-shot weights to get the line to move through the cork to the stop. They enable you to cast a longer distance from the boat or bank and still be able to get the bait down deep under a cork. Just imagine trying to cast a minnow under a cork set 15 feet deep without a slip cork! (grin)
Good luck and good fishin'
