Heavy Metal Extra Sink Putty

Add extra weight to your fishing line with our heavy sink putty.


Heavy Metal Extra fishing line weight offers a vastly improved alternative to lead shot. Due to its incredible content of tungsten, its weight is comparable to lead, but completely safe and non-toxic. As it warms up it becomes softer. As it cools down it reverts back to its original hardness. Once it has softened to the consistency of chewing gum mold it around your line to your required shape. Immerse fishing line weight in water for ten seconds for the putty to cure and harden before casting. 25g per tub.

    Good escape - 7/30/2015

    The sink putty is a good escape from conventional split shot. The putty when placed on the line and quenched stays in place and does not move. Nothing is more aggregating than moving split shot or having to tie knots in your leader. This putty is better than other sink putting on the market.

    The amount of putty for the money paid is excellent. Once warmed up in the hand it moulds perfectly to whatever shape you need.

    This stuff is really great. - 5/12/2015

    I use this stuff when using nymphs and it works very well. I like it in place of split shot in spots where you can get stuck in the rocks and I like the idea of adjusting the weight by using just as much as you need.

    Split shots...who needs them! ;-) - 5/1/2015

    Must admit I was a little skeptical when I first tried the sink putty. Didn't think it would stay on but I've used the same little piece for three straight outings! Works great. Has a fast sink rate, stays on, doesn't slide and it comes off easily when you decide to take it off. Great product Orvis!

    A Must - 4/20/2015

    If you fish with a floating line this is a must! Does not stick to your rod like similar products and stays on until you take it off! Brilliant product

    Ive been slow to adopt new things and I'm not an avid fisherman, but I do enjoy my days on the water. I wish I'd had this stuff in my vest over the last couple years - its easy to shape, apply and remove - and I'm all for that

    Soft plunk! - 11/24/2014
    By: from NH

    This putty was recommended by someone that had used it for steelhead. You could shape it as you wished, as much as you needed to get down & dirty. There was much less of an audible plunk compared to slinkys or split shot. More hook ups? not sure but I will always have it in my vest.

    Better than Split Shot - 11/10/2014
    By: from Washington State

    After returning to fly fishing after a 12 year layoff, I quickly remembered disliking dealing with split shot. Still playing with getting just the right amount of putty during nymph fishing. Great product. Try it!!

    tungsten putty - 1/29/2014

    This product is very useful and molds very easily, there is a smaller amount of it than it appears in the picture, but there is still plenty.
