What is fishing weight or fishing sinker?
Tungsten weights are an ideal, environment-friendly alternative to lead weights,
which are toxic and increasingly being labeled an environmental
hazard. Tungsten weights are harder than steel and extremely dense,
tungsten being on average 30 percent smaller than its lead
counterpart. Tungsten weights are smaller than conventional
weights, create twice the sound of lead weights and maintain their
shape for longer. Tungsten is also used in the production of other
fishing applications, such as tungsten-carbide line cutters and
tungsten powder coating for fishing lines.
A fishing sinker or plummet is a weight used to force a lure or
bait to increase its rate of sink, anchoring ability, and/or
casting distance. Fishing sinkers may be as small as 1/32 of an
ounce for applications in shallow water, even smaller for fly
fishing applications, or as large as several pounds or considerably
more for deep sea fishing. They are formed into nearly innumerable
shapes for diverse fishing applications. Environmental concerns
surround the usage of most fishing sinker materials.
A jig is a type of fishing lure that usually consisting of a lead
sinker with a hook molded into it and usually covered by a soft
body to attract fish. However, recently, tungsten alloy fishing
weights (fishing sinkers) is becoming more and more popular among
angles because it has the features of high density, small volume,
and environmental friendly, and has been taking place of the lead
Jigs are intended to create a jerky, vertical motion, as opposed to
spinner baits which move through the water horizontally. The jig is
very versatile and can be used in both salt water as well as fresh
water. Many species are attracted to the lure which has made it
popular amongst anglers for years.
The fishing sinker/ weight is made by rare metal - Tungsten, it is
an ideal substitute of the lead fishing sinker. It's strong
adhesive, semi-solid state, soft for a long term. Tungsten Heavy
Alloys concentrate maximum weight in the smallest possible space.
They are more often to be used as counterweight in sporting field,
such as fishing sinkers, golf weights, etc.
