MagWeights

Recommended Posts

Has anyone used these?  What is the verdict if you have?  I like the concept of a magnetic weight that will stay attached to the eye of the hook but I have a hard time believing that a magnet that small would be strong enough to adhere to the surface area of the hook that it comes into contact with.

The only way of knowing is to try, that 's for sure. Now on how strong the magnetic attraction the weight can generate is something that has to be tried out. The strength of the magnetic attraction can 't be measured by how big or small the magnet is, that depends a lot on many things and against what the attraction is being applied on.

A good example would be the magnets found in reels with magnetic brake systems, x material magnet over aluminum would have a different attracting power if it 's applied against another material like brass or steel.

The weight may be small but generate enough attraction to maintain it "fixed" against the steel of the hook.
