Ensure your fly gets to the correct depth without sacrificing a quality presentation with Deep Soft Weight™. Deep Soft Weight is a fish-friendly, non-lead reusable weight putty made with non-toxic tungsten that you simply place on your leader. Deep Soft Weight hardens when it hits the cold water and it will not crimp your tippet or hang up in rocks like split shot. Try Deep Soft Weight once and you'll never use anything else again.

  • Ensures your fly gets to the proper depth
  • Lead-free
  • Non-toxic tungsten

Tips for using Deep Soft Weight:
On hot days you can place the container into the stream to ''firm up'' Deep Soft Weight to a desirable consistency. On cold days you can keep the container close to your body so it can remain pliable. Be sure not to leave the Deep Soft Weight on your leader after you are through fishing as it can warm up and stain vests or other articles. Stays put best when placed over a knot.

Really great stuff I used this product for the first time last September fishing with a guide on the Roaring Fork in Colorado. He was not familiar with it but thought it performed better than any weighting material he had ever used...I agree. When he got the weight adjusted correctly (which did not take him long), I caught fish all day long. It is so easy to adjust the amount of weight and when it is tapered around the line, it does not hang up like split shot. And it is not toxic to any critters who might swallow it. It's a win- win product all around. The expense may seem high but it is really easy to reuse. Just check now and then to be sure it is wrapped around the line. December 29, 2011
Love It Its a great idea, creating a moldable weight. Because the weight is made out of tungsten, you get more weight for a smaller amount. It seems pricey, but its actually cheaper than buying a couple smaller tungsten weights for a lower price, with much more weight. It's ideal for flies, but its ideal and easy to use for other types of fishing as well. Try not to leave it in the sun, because with the more heat, the softer it gets, and the more it sticks to its container. I put it in the fridge when I get home from a day of fishing. Great product.

Great, but not for warm water. I really love this stuff, it does not get hung up as much or create unnecessary weak points in your line like split shot. It's also a bit heavier than lead which means it takes a smaller piece to achieve the same effect. Since its mold-able you can also do some unique things with it. The downside is, it really only performs well in cold or cool water. With warm water it just never seems to stay hard enough to stay in place if your simply attaching it to a leader. That's the only reason I don't give it 5 stars. July 31, 2012
Greatest invention ever I love this stuff. Wrap a little above your fly on your tippet (after you dry it well) and suddenly you have extra weight right where you need it. You can get as stealthy as you'd like using this stuff. Best part is, when you're done fishing just pull it off and put it back in the container, run a damp towel down your tippet and you're ready to tie on a Wulff for the evening rise! May 14, 2009

A: 
What you get is a slab of somewhat sticky, putty-like material. It feels like soft lead and is quite heavy for its size. You just pinch off a small piece and roll it around the line where you would normally pinch on a split shot. Taper it by rolling it between the fingers until it is wrapped around the line. When done fishing, put it back in the container.

It looks like black putty with a little bit of sparkle in it.

A: 
It is a gray paste substance that also seems a bit gritty. It is soft and pliable when warm but stiffens when cold. You take a small dab in your fingers and roll it over a leader knot into a small cylinder shape. Dip into the cold water of a trout stream before casting and it will firm up to hold in place. Warm it between your fingers to remove later.
