I always thought a weight was a weight but I am finding out that there is a lot of difference between brands of tungsten weights. Inserts or not, paint coating, etc. Before I plunk down some big dollars, I would like to hear your thoughts and what brand of tungsten weights you use and why.

I like the reins tungsten weights with the inserts in them. The inserts are soft and easier on the line.

Do you think the painted weights are better than polished weights? I too am converting to tungsten.

I've had good luck with River A weights and APT too! Both have polished edges so they won't cut your line.

river a tackle is a TFF member and local to DFW area. He does a great job with customer service and respects quality. He inspects each weight that he packages.

Anglers Pro Tackle sell the CHEAPER than Dirt brand.. which I think he buys them overseas. I recommend for whatever brand you pick to NOT choose Painted and make sure the insert is POLISHED. The painted ones will chip and flake over time, which can cause a fray or nick. Strike king, Picasso both have good stuff but they can cost a little more.
