S.A.F.E. Angling Products - Eco Pro Tungsten
Eco Pro Tungsten was created to fill a void in the fishing industry by offering quality products that are safe for the environment.
Eco Pro Tungsten makes tungsten fishing weights with the most variety in sizes and colors available today. In addition, Eco Pro Tungsten manufacturers nail weights, inline spinners, ice jigs, a unique wacky-rig system, drop-shot weights and jigheads - all 100% lead free.
The company designs its products for bass fishermen, but anglers targeting any species will find their weights useful. They're also expanding into other specific fisheries with inline spinners and ice fishing jig heads.
Eco Pro would like anglers to know that the biggest misconception is that all tungsten weights are created equal. In fact, there are many differences in tungsten production which can result in inferior products, design flaws and less pure tungsten (they use 97% pure tungsten). The manufacturing process is crucial to making a good product.
At Eco Pro, the insert-free design and seal coat painting allow their products to last and not fray line. The available colors allow anglers to match their soft plastic baits to the color of the weight. They also feature a two ounce tungsten weight (the largest in the category), which is designed for punching into heavy cover.
Tim Norman is the President and National Sales Director. Eco Pro Tungsten is manufactured in China with adherence to strict quality standards.
Worm weights start at $5.49 per pack; other products are $4.49 and up.
