These work exactly like the lead ones I used to use, if a barely noticeable bit lighter. Good for waterfowl. They are more reusable and less prone to getting mangled during removal than lead. I have never had any trouble removing these from my leader, using the forceps/thumb method.
Fish with tin, and you'll catch more fish. Easily reusable with a fingernail and forceps. My only qualm is that the quantity of weights in the pack is on the slim side (think approx 10 BB's)...if only being nicer to fish was more cost friendly...
These weights are made of tin, not lead - enough said! No reason to pollute rivers with lead when there are great tin options like this. For easy reopening of weights, just use your forceps and the pop right open for reuse.
The 4-way round contains: Sizes BB, #1, #4 and #6.
basic set of weights and gets the job done
I am all about not polluting our waters while I fish. The tin instead of lead is an excellent idea for this. However, the lack of a reopening device means I sacrifice my leader when I want to change weights. It also means I can't reuse my weights to help save the environment. Change that one thing and they would be perfect, I'd even pay more for them.
