Personaly i use shot for pole rigs upto 1grm, over 1grm it's normaly olivets with the exception of paste fishing when i'll use large shot such as a bulk of AAA or SSG.
Found in the past that styls were to fidly to put on and prone to tangling and the micro shot these days a so good i never have problems with moving them on fine hook lengths such as .055 Pro 3

i always use shot, but styles can be useful (i think) for shallow on the drop fishing because they have a higher surface area than shot so they create more resistane and sink slower. i also use olivettes on floats over 1g.
