I can vouch for Charlie’s ( trade me) sinkers I use them all the time24/11/2007 at 11:58 am #9385
The ones on Trademe are nice but I agree they are sometimes a touch heavy. Although, I have found they need to be heavy to get a grip on our rough eastcoast beaches.
His “Sinker~Keeper” tube is also a nice idea. It is really only a piece of plastic pipe so would be easy to make your own.24/11/2007 at 12:27 pm #9386
I find 3oz sinkers are good for when the sea is calm and I’m not targeting anything big and24/11/2007 at 12:57 pm #9387
Check at Decoro.co.nz , they have quite a range on their site and are slightly cheaper then most.
3oz ADH Breakaway Sinker: NZ $2.70
Grip N Free sinker. NZ $2.70
I believe the owner or manager sometimes posts on these forums under the name “Decoro Fishing Supplies”.24/11/2007 at 1:23 pm #9388
That’s what I’m after. Thanks for the help guys.24/11/2007 at 9:30 pm #9391
One problem I find with buying sinkers online is that often the postage cost eats away at the potential savings. Often costs are higher for me because I live at a RD address.
So to minimise the impact of post, I often purchase other junk which I do not really need. Luckily I now have duplicates of most surfcasting items.26/11/2007 at 8:26 am #9402St_PaulParticipant
I now make all my own breakouts using the gemini molds from tackle tactics, one mould allows you to make 3-9oz sinkers.01/12/2007 at 3:20 pm #9434
Rebel sport have 50% off sinkers this weekend.26/12/2007 at 8:54 pm #9588
Booger did you have any luck sourcing inexpensive sinkers?
After a rough night in the surf I only have 3-4 left so need to stock up again.26/12/2007 at 9:45 pm #9589
For 3 and 4oz breakouts I bought the ADH ones you suggested from Decoro, they’re OK. For 5oz I suggest getting some from ‘Palmetto’ on TradeMe. Instead of the breakout wires fitting into grooves on the sinker, the wires have beads on them that click into a hole on the sinker before casting, this works a lot better than the other type.27/12/2007 at 3:55 pm #9590
Yeah I been using the Palmetto. Not to sure about the ones with the long tails. They got bent on a few of mine.
