Sputnik's may look odd, but the tines attached to the lead sinker serve a very useful purpose. The tines dig into the sand on the bottom and lock the sinker in place. Sputnik sinkers allow surf anglers to use lighter weights to hold bottom in more turbulent surf conditions. Available from TackleDirect ranging from 2 oz. up to 6 oz., you will be sure to find the size you need for your next fishing trip.

Good alternative to pyramid
July 19, 2021
these hold better per ounce than a pyramid in the Florida sand from shore. They are also more aerodynamic so I don't get as much helicoptering when I cast out (less tangles on the leader or on the high low rigs). I do find the need to snug up the wires to get proper release, but this is easy enough with my needle nose.

Worked well in the surf for lighter baits. Arms help hold the sandy bottom. Overall quality is very good.

Best Surf Weight Out There
March 24, 2020
The only thing I use in the surf anymore. Holds better than any other design and pulls free easily enough when fish hit or pulling your line in.

Prosable to find the long arm spucnic
Consplastic pieces will come off rendering the spudnic useless until the plastic pieces are replaced.
