Why Tungsten Fishing Sinkers? | Agescan International

Tungsten alloy fishing sinkers are weights used to force a lure or bait to increase its sink rate, anchoring ability, and casting distance. Tungsten alloy fishing sinkers may be as small as 1/32 of an ounce for applications, even smaller for fly-fishing applications. They can get as large as several pounds or considerably more for deep-sea fishing. They are formed into nearly innumerable shapes for diverse fishing applications. Unlike lead, environmental concerns do not surround the usage of tungsten alloy fishing weight materials.

Tungsten alloy fishing sinkers are an ideal, environmentally friendly alternative to lead weights, which are toxic and increasingly being labeled an environmental hazard. They are harder than steel and extremely dense, tungsten being on average 30 percent smaller than its lead counterpart is. Meanwhile, they are smaller than conventional weights, create twice the sound of lead weights, and maintain their shape for longer.

Advantages of Tungsten Fishing Weights?

  • Small body and high density: thanks to its high-density characteristics, the tungsten sinker can achieve the same weight requirement with much less body size.
  • Nuisance free: Accordance with requirements of international environmental protection standard)
  • Strong wind resistance: Due to its high density of tungsten which makes the tungsten alloy fishing sinker can resist wind effect during fishing, create an ideal fishing effect and make your fishing become more comfortable and efficient.

How Does Tungsten Fishing Weight Work?

Fishing weight is also called fishing jigs and can be used in both freshwater and salty water. The only difference is the weight used. It is important to be sure that tungsten counterweights will sink fast enough into the water.

Generally, try to adopt the lightest jig weight if possible, because the lightest fishing jig permits you to feel the bottom and any cover it contacts. In clear water, lighter weights ranging from1/8 ounce to 1/4 ounce should be combined with a light line for more effective and spinning tackle are also necessary.

For murky or deep water, it needs a more dense cover and heavier jigs about 3/8 to 5/8 ounce and can be fished on tackle with a heavy line. In the case of the windy day, it’s hard to maintain contact with it of fishing to detect strikes, while the product will be not the problem if blow a bow in your line and go to have a heavier fishing sinker.
