I got mine off of Amazon. 1/8 cylinder. 10 count, $10

Wal-Mart sells tungsten but it's $6 for 4-5 weights. And usually it's not the size or shape you want.

I tried to look at the Ten Bears web site and received all kinds of security warnings.

I just bout a whole bunch of tungsten weights from www.omfishingsinkers.com a few weeks ago, and I will DEFINITELY be going back. They have a huge variety of different weights, and the price cannot be beaten from what I've seen. I ordered all of the ones that have the weight sizes engraved on each weight, so you will never have to guess what size weight is what. I ordered a total of 30 weights a few weeks ago. Hopefully it will last me a long time, but as soon as I run out I'll definitely be ordering more from them.

Here's a link to the ones that I purchased specifically.

For anyone needing tungsten nail weights.


If you want more weight to the fluke or whatever. Buy a pack of these for $12 bucks. Fiber cut off wheel to cut them to length. Sharpened on a bench grinder. Grind a couple of notches in the side, if you feel they'll slip out the plastic. For which they won't.

Compare to a small pack of the Mustad Tungsten, 'Nail Weights' at $10.

(Edit to add: When you see these packs. They'll be different colors. You can use any color but Red. Known as 'Red Tungsten'. Don't buy it and definitely don't go cutting on it. The blue ones in the picture are 3/32". They sell bigger diameters and smaller.)

Be warned. It's not easy to cut. Expect to sit there a bit. Stick the rod in a drill. You can use a dremel. Spin the rod while cutting it.
