The weight and line size should depend on where you are throwing the lure, not what worm you are throwing.

If you are throwing the worm shallow, use a lighter weight, deeper= heavier.

Common sense stuff there.

To me too it seemed odd I think of t-rigging thicker/bigger heavier baits, ie beavers, brushhogs, big worms etc., and robo's aren't that big. but 7 inchers t-rig quite well with an 1/8 oz bullet. You can also by the fat head ones. Honestly I've come to catch more fish on a shakey head anyway so I don't do it all that much anymore.

Again it depends where. As a newbi I would throw a little heavier weight so you can keep the worm on the bottom a little longer while its doing its thing. People often over fish this thing and catch nothing with it. Try different stuff dude, work it how you would like, because you may stumble onto something totally different. What works for the masses will in time fade away....

as light as you can get away with. It does matter how deep your fishing as sensitivity does dwindle the more line you have out, best advise I ever got was to work your baits in a pool (or very clear water), watch what it does, remember how you make it do what you want it to do and duplicate on the water.

bottom line if you get the worm to the bottom with the tail standing up, it will catch fish

I'll use a 1/8 or 3/16 weight at the most. I usually prefer a 3/16 shakey head for Robos.

I was on this bite in the Delta once that was a 6 inch purple ghost finess worm rigged with a 3/8 and the thing dropped like a dart but it made the fish crazy. There is not a set weight, it all depends on what your fish want.
