Swimerz Barrel Sinker, Tungsten
Tungsten’s heavy alloys concentrate the maximum weight into the smallest possible space; as a result a tungsten weight forces a lure or bait to increase its sink rate, reaching the desired depth more quickly than similarly shaped Lead weights will. Tungsten alloy weights also create twice the sound of lead weights, assisting in attracting the attention of fish. These sinkers are desirable on rock or debris covered substrates as they are also significantly harder than lead and will maintain their shape, also being much smoother in their finish than lead sinkers. These sinkers are also widely used as counterweights in models, including slot cars, boats, etc.
