Anglers who have experienced the tungsten difference know the extra sensitivity this dense, hard metal can give you over softer, less dense lead or brass. When you drag a tungsten weight along the bottom, you'll be able to distinguish between bottom compositions, such as sand, gravel, rock, mud, and wood, much easier than with any other conventional bullet weight. Along with extra sensitivity, the smaller diameters of tungsten weights allow them to slip through snags much more easily than lead.
Tru-TungstenŽ has perfected the tungsten bullet weight. We are able to machine this metal into a true bullet shape so your weight slips through cover easily, and the rounded and polished central hole eliminates the need for a plastic insert.
Using tungsten weights with your Texas-rigged worm will give you the bottom contact advantage, and using the Tru-TungstenŽ weights when you're flipping will enable you to penetrate thick cover with a weight that is much smaller in size than the lead counterpart.
