    Paul, why do you want Magnetic weights? do they exist? I have never seen them. If its to keep the weight close to the hook, a power gum stop knot does the job quite nicely.

    Only ferrous metals are magnetic, most bullet / cone weights are lead or tungsten these are not magnetic unless its a poor grade tungsten that contains some iron.
    Am really curious as to why you would want a magnetic weight, surly it would rust like mad.

    Post above suggests the reason behind them, thanks Rob

    Nick for lead to be used in the UK, weights need to weigh more than 28.35g or 1oz so unlikely for most SP lure fishing, large jig heads for boat fishing maybe.

    As Rob Pimm said, magnetic cone weights do seem to exist for the reason I first thought, apparently they have magnets inserted into them, I still think a power gum stop knot is both easier and cheaper, and more versatile as you can move it along your leader to give the lure more freedom to move.
