tungsten

any of you bass fishermen use tungsten? i'm considering switching from lead but am curious if there is a big difference (besides the environmental issues). more accurate weights, compact, harder, etc.

I use tungten quite a bit and the only real difference i have seen next to density is they do punch through grass and mats better because you can get a heavier weight without goin much bigger than a lead weight of a smaller size.

when fishing in grass and stuff, do you ever peg your bullet weight? i know they have hooks and weights with a spring to screw keep a presentation compact, but i don't buy them. i sometimes break-off a toothpick in the bullet weight. any other methods?

I do peg them sometimes but once I peg a weight the toothpick never comes out so the weight is only useful for that first time you peg it. Im sure there is something that you can use to push it out but I dont know if its worth your time unless all you are doing is flipping grass and brush.
