Korda Dark Matter Balancing Weights
Korda’s new innovative pure tungsten interchangeable Dark Matter Balancing Weights are an industry first!
Created to sit over the barrel of a size11 swivel, these precision engineered weights counter-balance a buoyant hookbait on your chosen rig.
Ideal for use with chod, hinged stiff, and spinner rigs, they offer an alternative to putty. Made from pure tungsten, which is much denser than other tungsten filled rubber products, they have anamazing size to weight ratio which helps make the final rig neater.
The Dark Matter Balancing Weights can be used to counter balance most pop-ups/buoyant hookbaits, this is particularly helpful when using naked chod rigs where it can be tricky to obtain the weight needed to sink the pop-up. They are also quickly inter-changeable, which makes them perfect when trying to critically balance hookbaits. They do not wear and are reusable, meaning they will last forever if not lost. Available in five weights(0.30g–0.50g) with each individual product laser etched with a number to identify the weight i.e.0.30g is labelled as 30. In addition, a ‘mixed pack’ is available containing 15 weights (three of each size). With the mixed pack, you can try all of the weights until you find one which is perfect, and then use the same size each time for that particular hookbait. The Dark Matter Balancing Weights are the perfect solution when fishing waters that contain crayfish as they cannot pull them off the rig. They will fit over ALL Korda size 11 swivels- we have done everything we can to try and control the tolerance of Korda size 11 swivel barrels, but sometimes they are a little tight to push on fully by hand. We recommend using a Krimp Tool to carefully bring the balancing weight and swivel together. Please note that they will not necessarily fit on competitors size11 swivels, as sizes vary. Tungsten is a very hard material, it has little flex and therefore cannot be easily forced on to oversized barrels.
