sea weights

Post by Jolly T on Sun Sep 06, 2009 11:50 am

At long last i have managed to get myself operational for making weights now for either boat or shore, i can make
2oz through to 9oz ordinary beach leads
5oz grip leads
9oz 11oz and 13oz boat leads
and if required i can make some watch leads as well, which weigh in at 4oz

If needed i can take orders from you now and have decided price wise to cover my costs of gas etc i will sell the leads from 4oz and upwards at 75p each and smaller at 50p,
Also to help me out with this if you come across any srap pieces of lead then it will be gratefully recieved as im not that nimble on church roofs.

Also if you do have a need of other weights and sizes let me know as i now know of a contact who can supply over 200 moulds
please note that the prices will just cover my costs and are not to make a profit out of, and these prices are for members only, outsiders are welcome to buy but i think i will put the prices up but still under shop prices, i think thats fair, we can call it a member discount lol

Nice one Tony,

I know it is the start of this so you may not have the right moulds yet and for a one off, prices could be higher to cover the cost of the mould, etc but I like to be awkward!

Can I order 10 x 2oz and 10 x 3 oz (for carp fishing on silty bottom where you don't need to cast too far so a flatter shape as possible would be ideal).

Let me know timescale and we can arrange pickup and combine it with a little fishing I expect!

If I lose as many leads as Saturday again, I will need some breakaways also for the winter! but as you know I usually use 6 & 7 oz breakaways in the channel. Expect will order some 4 & 5 oz breakaways in future also for south coast.

Cheers mate.

ordinary grippers are normally what we use up here mate as a rule, and i can do 5oz ones with longer wires if that is any good

Coud work but think we will be fishing a big tide so not sure if will pullout all the time?

Have looked in Veals and found a kit where you screw in the attachment you want. May get a mould kit but don't have the time and equipment to make the leads at present.

If I get a mould kit will you be able to make the leads please?

yes i can Alex but if you use an ordinary gripper properly in an up tide situation even a 3oz wont pull out, you are worrying too much, i have fished the channel from a boat many times and never had a problem, if you are worried i can do something with an ordinary mould if you can find one the sizes you want

Was just going on what Steve of veals, the skipper and everything I have read and people I have spoken to have said regarding uptide leads.

Was also it would be a lot easier if I had a load of different sized weights with interchangeable heads dependent upon the conditions.
