I'm sure you have heard all the hoopla about lead ... the dangers of it and all. Well, fishing with lead weights is a bad thing, too. The lead leeches out into the water and contaminates everything that comes in contact with it.
There are new weights available now in Tungsten. These lead-free weights are better for more than one reason. Of course, the most important is no lead. But, in addition to that, Tungsten is heavier (denser) per its size. Therefore, a 1/4 ounce Tungsten weight is smaller and slimmer than its counterpart in lead. This will make it fish easier, with less hangups, and penetrate cover better.
Sounds like a win-win situation for both Mother Nature and us anglers. We will try to bring you some good deals on these new weights on our tackle site, More Tackle, but in the meantime we still have other weights at rock bottom prices.
