Good escape -
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. -
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! ;-) -

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 -
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
A real improvement -

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! -

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 -

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!!
Great product -
A great product for nymphing , I was introduced to this by a guide in NH.... Awesome stuff!

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.
