I'm looking into getting some tungsten bullet wieghts in bulk.     Where do you all buy them.  What do they look like?   Pics?               Any info would be great.

I don't use them very often, mostly get the bigger weights in 3/4 1 and 1.5 ounce size for punching grass.

Best price I've found locally is BPS and the run right around $6.00 for two 1/2 and for one 3/4 or 1 ounce weight and $6.49 for per weight for the 1.24 and 1.5 ounce size.

Would love to see them for less   ~xyz

I use the Parasite weights in tungsten. 

I love Parasite, but have had issues with the durability of the clip on the tungsten; one side of the clip keeps coming undone from the weight.   :(

I had that problem with an earlier order but haven't had it in a while.

I just started using tungsten and get it at bass pro.  Have no idea what I paid.

I only sell the Penetrator weights at my store.  I know what I buy them for and I sell them for $5.99 /pkg  Honestly the 3/4, 1, and 1 3/8 ounce pkgs I can't keep in stock.  Whats funny is people complain about the price but will throw $50 worth of sinkers up on the counter.  lo

Use the Bass Pro XPS brand and pay a little less than a buck apiece for 3/16ths oz weights .

There are some bulk sources online  and Im waiting on one of them to email me back Brent . I will forward his prices when I recieve them.

Sure would like to hear about a place you can order bulk...

BPS weights are shaped totally different and are not coated with the "slickery" coating like the Penetrator weights.  I have tried both and honestly the Penetrator weights are the best for MY purposes.

I use lead when practicing but use tungstun in the tourneys.  Last year I used either Tru tungstun or the Excaliber because I got deal on E-bay on them.

I use the Tru Tungsten weights because I like to match a painted head to my plastic bait.  I opt for the Excalibur brand drop shot weights however, basically because I had issues with the BPS weights falling off on casts. 

All tungsten weights seem to be about $1 or $1.25 per weight.

A two pack of the larger sizes is in excess of 10 bucks minimum.     Bass Pro charges 13.99 a two pack.   Maybe i'm looking in the wrong places.
