At a Glance: Weights & Sinkers
Weights and sinkers are used to quicken the pace in which a lure and hook will sink. They are also used to add weight to increase the possible distance of a cast. Weights and sinkers can range in shape and size, the smallest weighing one gram and the largest coming in at over five ounces. With over twelve types of weights and sinkers available at FishUSA, there are a few different types of materials to choose from. The available items are made from lead, tungsten, tin or an eco-friendly material.
