Anyone know of a good place to get tungsten with inserts?

Also maybe a source for some insert tubing to put into some I have? I tried the heat shrink method and it wont go thru for me.

Just curious, why do you need tungsten with inserts? Lots of good weights on the market now with polished edges that don't need inserts.

Because that is bs and they break your line if your using 3/8 or heavier unless its pegged.

65 lb maxquatro and tatsu 15-20 have all broke and been worn with polished inside tungsten

I have a ton of tungsten with no inserts and throw up to 1 ounce and have never had it cut my line.

Inserts are unnecessary but Tacklewarehouse has several options if you want them.

One or maybe two bobber stops ahead of the weight will keep it from sliding. Then the weight won't tend to fray the line as much.

You're using the wrong tungsten if you need inserts

Ill try some different ones but Ive got them from several sources with the same results.

I bought some picaso with inserts but Im guessing theyll lose sensitivity.
