Lead Fishing Weight

Lead Fishing Weights

The fishing industry uses lead wire for making fishing weights and various types of tackle used in both commercial and recreational fishing.  Normally pure lead is used to make weights or formed using presses.  Often referred to as bullet weights or lead bullet weights.

We can extrude lead wire in various diameters coiled onto pallets or spooled up to 150 pounds per spool.  Depending on the customer's requirements we can use pure lead or an alloy with tin, antimony or both.  Pure lead will be the least expensive, heaviest and softest.  

The hardness may need to be increased for either the end user's requirements or for the production process.  Too soft can allow the lead to extrude into places it is not wanted and increasing the hardness sometimes can aide in the production process.
