Our new innovative pure tungsten interchangeable DM BALANCING WEIGHTS are an industry first! Created to sit over the barrel of a size 11 swivel, these precisions engineered weights counter balance a buoyant hook bait on your chosen rig. Ideal for use with Chod, Hinge-Stiff and Spinner rigs they offer a neat alternative to putty. Made from pure tungsten, which is much denser than other tungsten filled rubber products, they have an amazing size to weight ratio which helps make the final rig neater.
The DM BALANCING WEIGHTS can be used to counterbalance most pop ups / buoyant hook baits, this is particularly helpful when using naked Chod rigs where is it can be tricky to obtain the weight needed to sink the pop up. They are also quickly interchangeable, which makes them perfect when trying to critically balance hook baits. They do not wear and are reusable, meaning they will last forever if not lost.
Available in 5 weights (0.30g – 0.50g) with each individual product laser etched with a number to identify the weight i.e. 0.30g is labelled as 30. In addition, a ‘mixed pack’ is available containing 15 weights (3 of each size). With the mixed pack, you can try all of the weights until you find one which is perfect, and then use the same size each time for that particular hook bait.
Did you know? Crayfish are attracted to tungsten, and anglers fishing waters with them in will tell you what a nightmare they are when using putty. The DM BALANCING WEIGHTS are the perfect solution to this issue when fishing waters that contain crayfish as they cannot pull them off the rig.
TIP: They will fit over ALL Korda size 11 swivels. We have done everything we can to try and control the tolerance of Korda size 11 swivel barrels, BUT sometimes they are a little tight to push on fully by hand. We recommend using a Krimp Tool to carefully bring the balancing weight and swivel together. Please note that they will not necessarily fit on competitor’s size 11 swivels as sizes vary. Tungsten is a very hard material, it has little flex and therefore cannot be easily forced onto oversized barrels.
