Rating: Accurate Weight & Fits Weight Belt Pockets
Reviewer: Laura Slavin  -  View all my reviews
I bought a total of five of these. With the sixth one I already had, I verified the total weight at 30 lb or 5-lb ea. They fit my weight belt pouches. They appear to be sewn together well. Only time and use will tell if they hold up. The price was lower than most and the delivery time was as-advertised.

Rating: XS SCUBA Lead Shot Weight

Very heavy just as you would expect a lead weight to be. Enough of these will make you sink for sure.

Rating: Great Compact Weights
Reviewer: Patty S S.  -  View all my reviews
The weight bags are compact and made of a material that is tuff and durable. Weight bag does not lose its shape size, as some weight bags tend to flaten out more and lose their shape as the material stretches. So far these bags have not done that and dont appear that they will. Good quality material. Easily identifiable by the clearly imprinted weight size number and each weight bag is colored differently. I chose to get each size weight bag, 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 oz. bags in different quantities to use for snorkeling and scuba. They also fit easily in weight belt. John S., Natchez, MS

Rating: Just as Expected
Reviewer: Bradford Stanley  -  View all my reviews
I like the flexible mesh casing much more than other brands that use harder mesh material. It makes it easier to pack into my BCD weight sleeve.

Questions and Answers for XS Scuba Lead Shot Weight:


  • Dave:

    I weigh 270 lbs and plan to free dive. I am wondering how much weight I can use to keep myself at the bottom while diving and metal detecting I have a air supply that will allow me to stay under without air tanks.

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    It depends on what wetsuit, if any, you plan to wear. 7mm in the ocean is typically 10% of your weight. 3mm about 5%. This is an estimate and will give a place to start.

  • Chris:

    What metal is used? Does it rust? How quickly? Before I might think about replacement (staining clothes, bags, etc)? Can these be used in swimming pool too? How can I keep the metal from rusting too quickly?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Chris, these are made out of lead shot. So they will not rust.

  • Joe:

    Just wondering. The price of 4.99 on the weights. How much or.how many do you get for that price ?

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    This is for 1 pound. The grades show the extra charge for the others. There is also a surcharge for shipping.

  • Frederico:

    Do you ship to Portugal, Europe?!

    Arthur  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    yes we do.

  • Andres:

    Would these fit into the integrated weight system of the aqualung pro lt bc surelock system

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Yes

  • Susan:

    I use my wet suit for swimming in a pool but find that the bouyancy makes it tough. How much weight should I add to hold myself down and why kin of system or belt do I need for this?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Susan, you would need a weight belt, and depends on how much weight you need would be thickness of suit. Rule of thumb is 1 lb. per MM of thickness.

  • Dan:

    I have a specific ballast need for lead shot, and it is difficult to find lead shot in small weight quantities such as 2lbs. I would like to know the diameter of the shot being used in your weight bags to determine if it is suitable for my application. Thanks

    Arthur  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello, these are lead shot weights so they can be formed into whatever shape you want.

  • Dan:

    Hi again, my application limits the diameter of the shot I can use, not the shape. I would use the lead shot weights inside the bag without the bag. Thats why I am interested in finding out the diameter of the shot in the bag. Thanks

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Dan, for that information you would need to contact the manufacture directly at 866-977-2822 they would be able to help you with those measurements.

  • Jeffrey:

    Is it possible to fit three of the five pound XS soft lead shot bags on each side of the releaseable weight pouches on my Tusa Conquest BCJ 7000? Also, will the five pound weights fit into the trim pouches?

    Chance  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    The Tusa BCJ 7000 is designed to have 20 lbs releasable weight & 10 lbs in the trim. So you could fit two 5lb shot weights in each of the front releasable pockets, and one 5lb shot weight in each of the trim pouches.

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Jeffrey, no the weight pockets are only designed to hold 10 lbs each side. If you put more than that in them they might not fit into the BC correctly. As for the trim weight pockets yes they are designed to hold 5lbs each. For a total of 30 lbs.
