Video Demo: Fishing Weight Inertia

The more mass an object has, the more inertia it has.  Inertia is the tendency of an object to resist a change in motion.  There are two fishing weights.  One has more mass than the other.  A string applies an unbalanced force to the different weights.  Which one resists a change in motion?  Watch the video.
