Tungsten heavy metal fishing sinker is made from clean metal powder. Due to large specific gravity (> 18g/cc) and its small size, it is characterized with strong breeze resistance, light water entry, and fast sinking ability. So it is the best alternative to lead sinker, and popular in Europe and other developed countries. There are water drop type, bullet type, tube type, and ball type.
Advantages of tungsten alloy fishing sinkers
1. Small volume
Tungsten heavy metal fishing sinkers is smaller than the conventional lead fishing sinker. It will be hung up far less with a tungsten heavy metal sinker than with a lead sinker because of its smaller size.
it’s harder than lead fishing sinker. It will not be stuck in the jowl of the fish. So the shape will be maintained longer.
3. Strong wind resistance
as the high density of tungsten, the tungsten heavy metal fishing sinker makes your fishing easier. It is extremely sensitive and can actually help you “feel” what the bottom is made of and what your bait is bumping into, such as brush, rocks, mud, etc.
Tungsten fishing weights/eyes are an ideal, environment-friendly alternative to lead weights, which are toxic and increasingly being labeled an environmental hazard.
