Why we use tungsten alloy fishing sinkers?
Tungsten has gained a lot of popularity recently. Tungsten uses about 50% less material than lead for the same amount of weight. This means a 1-ounce tungsten sinker has a smaller volume, letting it penetrate weeds easier. Also, tungsten is more dense than lead. This makes your fishing more sensitive. It transmits vibrations differently depending on if you're fishing in mud, rock or wood.
Advantages of tungsten:
1. Small volume
High density make tungsten alloy fishing sinkers/weights smaller than the conventional lead fishing weights. It will be hung up far less with a tungsten sinker than with a lead sinker because of its smaller size.
It's harder than lead fishing weight. 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 alloy 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 are an ideal, Tungsten weights is environmentally friendly and lead is toxic and more and more lead is marked as environmental hazards.
