6th sense fishing is what I’m using with no chipping issues and H20 express hasn’t been bad

I use a few...

Dropshot pencil weights: joy.fish OMFish out of China. But them in bulk so it's cheaper

https://www.omfishingsinkers.com/
https://joy.fish/

Worm weights: I buy from John Dell @ Native Tungsten he carries oxidized Tg which don't chip. I have also bought from FlipSide on here as well. Great service and prices. Can't go wrong with either of these suppliers.

Does it take long to get the delivery out of China?

Honestly...it hasn't been bad recently. When COVID hit, it took quite a while. So I stocked before I ran out.

One time over 6wks another time 2wks plan ahead like during winter down time. Omni has been cheapest in price hold up pretty good. With off loading at ports being slow and ships backed up might be longer.

Said it before and I'll say it again. All tungsten weights come from China. There is no tungsten manufacturing done in the states, thanks to the epa.

Not at all. Message them and ask them for an estimate. theyre usually pretty good on estimates.

If you are spending anywhere near $100.....which is extremely easy to do. message them and tell them you are putting together a "bulk order" for you and your fishing buddies, and wanted to know if they could give you a "bulk discount". Also...if they give you a shipping estimate....and they are even a few days off, give them a holler to ask for an order update and why it is taking so long and that you were depending on the timing of the package getting their. THEN....if you reorder reorder from that email thread and ask them to give you a discount.

I recommend NEVER doing this with any company....especially if its a US company. now with that said....i hate china (the country and government, not the people). all the blank seller's, tungsten weight sellers and other alibaba type tackle retailers are all Chinese.....and are ruthless when it comes to their bottom line. Negotiate them down as much as you can. They get [censored] for dirt cheap over there and will usually fold easily and give you discounts.

ALSO.....im saying all this but its been at least 6 months since ive ordred. it was during covid thought....but they might not be as flexible now as they were then. They even recently raised minimums for free shipping. Still try it tho. FUzz China.

Sorry had to censor myself since my last vacation was due to a china rant....and foul language I snuck in roflmao

I dont think we agree about anything...but this is my understanding as well. Ive also been told that some companies have bought from omfishingsinkers and resold them under their own brand name.....and this was from a "sponsored pro" for said company 🤷‍♂️

No im not saying it was anyone famous....just another "pro team" normal joe type of dude, but that is what he told me 🤔
