Black Oxidized. Non-Chip. Tungsten Worm Weights. The greatest advantage of tungsten is that tungsten is more dense than lead, so the same weight is smaller in size, which makes it more aerodynamic. It casts further and performs better in wind. 


The high density also helps improve sensitivity for sensing the bottom structure. For this, I use the 1/4oz Battlestar XLS Weighted Swimbait Hook and add one of these 1/8oz Tungsten Worm Weights

I use these Tungsten Worm Weights when I Texas Rig Swimbaits, for targetting halibut. I also catch White Sea Bass, Grass Bass, Sand Bass, Striped Bass, the occasional Slab Barred Surf Perch, and even the occasional Corbina. I like to use a big hook-to-bait size ratio, to improve hookset. Halibut have no problem inhaling big baits and big hooks.

I usually start with a 1/8oz or 1/4oz weighted swimbait hook, and then add 1/8oz or 1/4oz worm weight for a total of 1/4oz or 1/2oz. I like the way 3/8oz swims slowly through the water and works in almost any conditions. You can swim it just off the bottom with a medium retrieve. 


If the water is deep, or if the current is really strong in the surf, or if I want to weight my bait forward to punch through kelp, then I might use as much as 5/8oz or 3/4oz. That's when I use the larger 1/2oz tungsten worm weight.


Keep a couple of each size in your surf pack at all times so you can adapt to the conditions you observe while fishing.
