The sample sinkers are defined as bullet or barrel sinkers because of their shape and range from 3/16 to ¾ ounces in weight.

The applicable subheading for the barrel and bullet fishing sinkers will be 9507.90.8000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), the provision for fishing rods, fish hooks and other line fishing tackleotherother, including parts and accessories. The general rate of duty will be 9 percent ad valorem.
