I do a lot of ice fishing and tungsten jigs are the hottest thing going. Only a couple of places making them. Of coarse tungsten has a melting point of 6192°f does put a damper on pouring your own, compared to lead melting point of 327°f, but they can be purchased in bulk, then paint or add your finishing touches to the raw jigs. They are extremely heavy weight for the size of the jig head. The ice fishing world loves them because a small tungsten jig will sink really fast and give better feel of the jig. It would be like fishing with a 1/8 oz lead jig only it would be the size of a 1/32 oz jig. ( I don't know the exact math, that is just an example of what I am talking about )
Some 20 years ago, international competitive ice fishing revealed tungsten jigs to North American anglers, when European teams would weigh in heavy bags of fish caught on the tiny, gold colored jigs. When pressed on what they were using, the answer was “volfram” — Swedish for tungsten.
