When extra weight is needed to get your flies, lure or bait down in the water column fast, (as in a sinker), Swimerz Soft Tungsten Putty is made from tungsten powder and a polymer binder, that can does just that. Softer than the standard version of Swimerz Tungsten Putty, Soft is even more malleable, stickier, and does not harden as readily in colder water temperatures.
This resulting material is 30% heavier than lead, reusable, and non-toxic, and has a smaller profile to have the same sinking benefits as lead, with no sticky residue on hands, clothing or gear. Tungsten Putty is lead free and therefore safer for the user and the environment.
To use - simply pinch the required amount off and mould firmly to the position required, either on the line as a sinker, or on the hook itself.
Swimerz Soft Tungsten Putty is available in 50 and 100 gram packs.
