I make my own hollow bodied tubes.  I also make the jig heads that go inside them.  I fish lots of brush piles and rocks so I use a weed guard.  Here is a pic of one of my tubes rigged up.

I normally fish them on spinning setups with 10 # mono but sometimes I use a bait caster with fluoro.

My tubes are fished on a 6'6" Carbonlite bait caster MH fast tip on a 3/0 EWG and a 3/16th slip sinker.  Pegged or not depends on how much slop it goes into.  The reel is a Curado 200 E7 spooled with 15lb Invizx, .013 dia.  All because of the heavy grass I have to deal with.
