Tungsten putty is a non-toxic, pliable weight that is great for tuning your pinewood derby car weight and center of gravity. The putty sticks to anything, allowing you to place it anywhere you need, in any amount, in a few minutes.

No more drilling holes in your pinewood derby racer!

It is also excellent as a fishing weight, simply pinch off the amount you need and mold it around your line. The weight is similar to lead, but non-toxic and very easy to customize to get the perfect lure presentation. Warm and mold it around your line with your fingers, and it will harden again when you dip it in the water before casting.

Each closable tin comes with 2 ounces of putty.

  1. Rated 3 out of 5

    I’ve been working on pinewood derby cars for a while. I first started with my children, then the past 10 years holding derby car clinics.

    Tungsten putty is important to get your car to maximum weight. I keep the unassembled car weighted at 4.9 ounces. I drill a shallow 1/4 hole under the car and pack in the tungsten putty to make up the last bit of weight. That way on race day you can make small weight adjustments without trashing your car. The fastest car is the heaviest.

    I’ve been getting tungsten putty from the large online derby suppliers. I figured I’d save money in shipping, use Amazon prime, and try a new product. This putty is less dense than the putty I’ve worked with in the past. It seems to have more sticky binder and less tungsten powder than what I’ve used in the past. I ordered 3 units. They easily fit inside one container. I even mixed some tungsten powder to the 3 blobs of putty.

    I prefer the stuff I got before but this will work

    I used it for adding weight to my flies for fishing, it was a little hard to get out of the container but it worked very well once applied.

  11. Rated 5 out of 5

    This tungsten putty is great for fishing in the trout streams of western North Carolina. It works better than traditional split shot because it is less likely to get hung up in the rocks. It allows you to add or subtract weight depending on river flow and depth. This is a must have for any trout fisherman. Tungsten putty is also environmentally friendly.
