Insert-free to allow greater sensitivity and easier line threading
Lead-free weights are 95% tungsten and 5% nickel
Heavier tungsten lets you downsize
Ideally shaped—rounded head and truncated base penetrate vegetation better
Our 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.

I've been fishing bass my whole life but it wasn't until just recently that I learned how to flip and punch in heavy cover with heavy line and weights. Wow! What a fun tecnique! You cannot use bulky lead weights with this style of fishing. It just won't work the way these tungsten weights will. The smaller profile tungsten weights are the only way to go. My only complaint is the price but its not going to stop me from buying more. Just won't be loading up the tackle box with them.

These weights are fantastic. They add that extra subtle touch that makes the difference some times when searching the feel of the bottom of the lake.

I use to use other brand Tungsten weights, so I decided to purchase the Bass pro xps weights and there just as good as it get.Since I buy 99% of my fishing gear etc. from Bass Pro, I will be purchasing these for now on also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by krak a must have for flipping
these are the only weights i use when flipping, the smaller size really lets you punch through the vegetation. i only use a 3/4 oz because the vegetation is not as thick in Michigan.

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.
