Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have!!! I've been using this for many years. It does not replace a small split shot on a nymph rig rather it allows you to quickly add weight easily without adding another split shot. I fish the shallower water with just the split shot; as the run gets deeper I add some soft weight to the split shot to get it down quicker. When the water gets shallow again, simply take off the soft weight put it back in the blue case to use again in the next run. If you are losing the soft weight while casting, try a different casting technique. Water loading and or roll casting will keep it in place.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed The advertisement listed this Tungsten Putty at 4oz. There was less than one ounce of the putty in the package. Very deceptive. I could have paid much less for a single ounce of Tungsten Putty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fish soft weight, catch more fish Being able to fine tune your weight is key to success, especially on hard fished tailwaters. You often add or subtract just a tiny amount of this soft putty while fishing a run, and bingo, "Game on". As an added bonus, if you hang up you might lose a little weight, but that beats losing 3 flies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stuff I cannot imagine nymph-fishing without Soft Tungsten Weight; it's simply a game changer! It allows any nymph fisherman to constantly adjust weight with ease, ensuring your flies are at the proper depth at all times. I recommend placing the Soft Tungsten Weight over a small split shot (size 6) to keep it in place. I typically put a slit shot on the junction between my leader and tippet, then add the Soft Tungsten Weight over it in a "ball shape" to avoid tangles or twist. Simple, but effective, and at the day's end, you'll catch more fish with Soft Tungsten Weight!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too soft The weight falls off the line to easily, especially when casting. I'm always adding another piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A game changer! I heard that Orvis was carrying this product. CUDOS Orvis!! Forget what you THINK you know about soft putty. This is not your grandma's putty, this is a game changer!! Two tricks. 1. use a small split shot to your line and add the putty to that. 2. after you add the putty, cool it down it the water, and shape it as you desire. This product WILL stay on. I've guided with this putty for years, and it allows you to add or subtract weight in seconds. THINK, before you change flies, add more weight! This product will lead you to that trophy trout!
