Lunker City Nail Insert Weights
Lunker City Nail Insert Weights often called "nail weights" are the key to maintaining that balance while adding weight to reach deeper into the fish's world or tune the lure's action to specific conditions. Ribbed design ensures that the weight will stay right where you put it, and they are soft enough to be trimmed to size with any line clipper.
Internal weighting allows the angler to balance his lure to achieve a specific result. If the desire is simply to make a lure work a little deeper, or to offset the effect of a breeze, placing the weight near the centre of the lure -- just behind the hook -- works best. Inserting the weight at the tail of the lure -- as in the lower illustration at the left -- causes it to sink tail first. Tail down also means nose up, so when you twitch a tail weighted lure it's easy to make it jump out of the water and skip across the surface like a terror-stricken baitfish
