ESP Tungsten Loaded, it's all I use for my edge fishing with bottom baits / wafters, I don't bother with sinkers just a blob of putty does what's required, 4 turn grinner to the swivel.

Esp semi stiff is good. Only problem I've had with sinkers is when I've forgotten to wet the coating first. The tungskin i find too supple, even in the higher breaking strains. The esp stuff also has darker marks added to help break it up when on the lake bed. Saves Messing around with marker pens.

Although it's barley noticeable due to the thicker braid that comes with a 35lb breaking strength, it's a bit stiffer.

Yeah I like the stuff bar this. Maybe itís a dud batch. Itís thinner diameter than the Nash one also so I thought It would be less prone.

I use either Korda n trap semi stiff or thinking anglers tungskin (my favourite) bit pricey but worth it

I donít like the ESP stuff , slide a sinker on and it breaks the coating. Much prefer the Gardner ultra sink and Nash Skin link. Neither of them break the coating on the sinkers or knots
