New from MFC! Anglers looking to sink, drift and swim flies effectively have a new alternative to tin and lead weights. It’s no secret that tungsten (a natural, ultra-tough, rare metal) is extremely dense and hard, offering more weight in a smaller volume. But creating tungsten weights for fly fishing presented a big challenge in that its hardness resulted in shots that were too brittle when formed into the traditional round, shot shape. Now, with its new Tungsten Split Shot, MFC has developed a solution to this problem by looking to the ocean. Tungsten is a chemical element that has greater density than lead and is 1.7 times denser, providing an improved sink rate. Tungsten is 2.7 times denser than tin.
