Our Bass Pro Shops® XPS® Tungsten Weights are now insert-free to allow greater sensitivity and easier line threading, particularly of thicker diameter lines. Environmentally safe, lead-free weights are 95% tungsten and 5% nickel. Since tungsten is much heavier and harder than lead, you can downsize your offerings, keep contact with the bottom, and increase sound attraction! Flippin’ Weights are ideally shaped, with a rounded head and truncated base to penetrate matted grass and other heavy vegetation.

Heavier tungsten lets you downsize
Ideally shaped—rounded head and truncated base penetrate vegetation better
Tungsten is a must when fishing heavy vegetation and these weights are perfect for flipping applications. Though the price is steep for tungsten weights, their density makes them much more effective than less expensive materials.

It is unbelievable the size to weight ratio with these weights. You can really get them thru the heavy cover and the small size makes for a good rig less likely to get hung up. Some say pricey but for the quality and performance they are well worth the price.

Pricey but worth it
I love the shape of these, they definitely help you get through heavy cover better then standard bullet weights. They're small which lets you really wiggle your way thru the toughest stuff. This is my go to weight for flipping

tungsten vs lead
These are the best! They are sleek, smooth, aerodynamic, and don't polute our lakes and streams. They are expensive, but if you can afford them it's the way to go.

You normally use these weights for punch rigs. Think of the Texas rig on steroids. Put on your weight with smart peg, then a punching skirt, then your 3/0 or up flippin' hook. You'll want to use 35lb or up braided line with all this. Use a snell knot when tieing on the hook. Then put on a big crawler or sweet beaver and you'll be ready to punch through heavy mats and get big bass.
I generally use them in a typical pegged Texas rigged configuration--I suppose they would make good Carolina rigs--but I generally use brass weights for that as size vs weight is not very important. If you are using mono you might want to but a glass bead between the weight and the hook to avoid line damage. I fish Senkos weightless whenever possible--sometimes a small Water Gremlin bullet crimp on to create an on-the-fly Carolina rig.
