    Category: more useless information that clogs up my brain......

    Xink is a combination of nonionic surfactants, which destroys the surface tension of water.

    Here is the patent and formula for Xink: US4184889A - Fly, line and leader sinker composition
    - Google Patents


    Note that the patent has just expired so you can make up a generic version.

    Propylene glycol (Kodak's Photoflo) is a very safe surfactant. Propylene glycol is a non ionic surfactant (a wetting agent) that breaks the surface tension of water and will cause even unweighted tippets to sink.

    https://intranet.ssp.ulaval.ca/cgpc/.../Photo-Flo.pei

    Ethylene glycol is also a surfactant and is used in antifreeze, so you can use antifreeze as a wetting agent and fly fishing "sinkant." However, propylene glycol is less toxic than ethylene glycol and so it is used as RV antifreeze to winterize the water systems of RV's. You can use RV antifreeze in the place of Xink.
