Just curious what yall do in regards to storage. I notice in a regular hook/weight box they bang around and eventually chip the finish. With the prices of tungsten it would be nice to keep the finish.

I wrap each individual piece of tungsten in bubble wrap then store in a box.

I wish they just sold them with a rough matt finish/pattern on the chrome instead, paint comes off regardless, and I prefer them to be dull not shiney

Just leave 'em in the package. I get the strike king ones and they come in little press pack things that keep 'em separated. The other brands have similar packaging

My reply certainly wasn't, I just let mine roll around in the box, and get beat up, makes no difference.

Do I need to start buffing the teeth marks from fish off the finish?
