I used to not believe in the hype of Tg....then I got some in a tackle swap and used them for the first time. When I was dragging bottom, pulling through limbs, etc...the feel is so different. The denseness of the Tg vs. Pb (Lead) is so great that the sensitivity increases. It will send vibrations a lot quicker through your line. Now it's the only weights I buy. You can get some good deals from: http://omfishingsinkers.com/ or a few others are Woo! or Swagger.

This ^^^^^ in the Finch Nasty brand. The bass pro brand pinch weight is not tight enough and you will loose a bunch unless you crimp it before you use it. I just buy the Finch Nasty ones and they work very well.

I read somewhere that a heavier weight makes more noise and helps drew attention to the lure. Thoughts?

I would not put much faith in that article. Just another wives tale.

I mostly use 3/8 oz. unless windy, then I go to 1/2 oz. I only use Tungsten. I won't the noise it make bouncing off of things. Much more dense.

Depends on what you are after. If you want it to fall slower through the water column not using more than 1/4 oz. I get lots of bites on the fall. If dragging through grass going to use 3/8to 1/2 oz. Windy days using 3/8 minimum. There is no one weight IMHO.

I use a bobber stop and lead bullet weights. If weight gets hung the line usually pulls through the bobber stop. And I can adjust the. Depth of the bottom super easy. Give it a try!!! Plus no line twisting
