Gamakatsu Report

Gamakatsu brings its legendary attention to detail and innovative thinking to the tungsten weight market. The new G-Shield Tungsten Weights are available in standard worm weights, flipping weights and punch weights. 

All three versions of the G-Shield weights feature a specially designed composite insert that not only protects an angler’s line, but also provides 360 degree protection for the knot. No more breaking off on the hook set or in heavy cover – these are made to eliminate the issues caused by uneven and rough tungsten. Furthermore, the insert is wider at the base than at the insertion hole so the hook eye can recess itself into the weight, thereby creating a more compact, lifelike and snag-resistant offering. All of the weights also come in a stealthy smoke-colored finish which blends in with plastics and your lure’s surroundings to generate more strikes. The weight size is stamped into the side of each weight making it easy to identify when it's time to make a change. 

Berkley Report

Both the PowerBait Bonefish and Curly Bones are designed with a heavy ribbed body and super thin tails to give a lifelike swimming action with little effort at slower speeds. The baitfish-like head design fits perfectly on Berkley Fusion19 Jigheads and excels when fished on a weighted swimbait hook or used on a dropshot rig.

The PowerBait Bonefish features a super thin paddle-style swimbait tail for erratic swimming action with minimal effort. The Curly Bones offers fish a different look with a vertically oriented thin ribbon tail and an activation tip to grab water and never stop moving, especially at slower speeds in cold water. Available in 12 walleye specific colors, the suggested retail on each is $5.99.
