The CAMO Tungsten Drop Shot Weights are a good 50% smaller than comparable weights made of lead. The hard material (98% Tungsten) lets you feel very well the condition of the water bottom. Once you have felt the Tungsten difference, you will always fish Tungsten! We chose the matte black color to keep the fish's focus on the soft lure as much as possible. With silver, shiny drop shot weights it happens very often that the predators also attack the sinker and thus produce a lot of "false bites".
