Tungsten is one of the densest and hardest materials in the world and has many advantages when it comes to fishing applications. Firstly, it is lead-free. This makes it an environmentally friendly alternative for weights whether it is for Texas rigging, Carolina rigging or Dropshotting. The density of tungsten is extremely beneficial as a 97% tungsten weight (like all of our Ultra Tungsten products are) is 40-50% smaller in size than an equivalent lead weight. This smaller profile allows your bait to slip through weeds, snags and penetrate heavy cover much easier.
All Ultra Tungsten products are 97% pure tungsten positioning them amongst the worlds smallest weights. There are no inserts to possibly interfere with or fray your fishing line. The line holes on Ultra Tungsten worm weights are rounded and polished smooth at both ends to minimize any line friction. Ultra Tungsten worm weights are available with or without a locking screw. Of course, the ones without the screw can be pegged in place with an Ultra Peg.
