You guys find any particular tungsten weights that just tend to get hung up LESS in rocks? I know youíll lose them eventually but you know what Iím getting at. TIA.


If you can't find em wind em.

I only use lead for c-rigs, but a cylinder or egg weight does better in rocks IMO

Lead is better for C rigging. Softer metal will pull through problem areas better than tungsten.

If you want tungsten barrel weights, this place has them. Iíve ordered before and they will take about 10days to arrive. But they are priced right

I like to break off C-rigs to much. I'll stick to brass.



I hate photobucket.

Iíd run 1 oz tungsten barrel weight in rocks, no beads or brass clacker pieces. Use 50 ibs braid for your mainline, sure youíll use a few, but not many...

1/2 ounce lead bullet or egg. Some of the more experienced anglers will use a 1 ounce but 1/2 ounce works fine for me.

I still use lead OR brass and glass on my C-rigs. Use just enough weight to get it down and feel it. From 3/8s to 1.5 oz. depending on the wind and the cover I am fishing. Generally, I like 1/2 to 3/4 for most stuff, but when teh wind lets down or starts howling, the smaller and bigger girls come out on the weights scale. Hope this helps. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.

Iím exclusively asking about shapes of weights. Iíve only used bullet style. I donít lose them all the time but maybe other shapes are less prone to wedging in rocks.


If you can't find em wind em.
