    I have been using Charlies sinkers for a while now and have had the odd one bend the tail as well but with the snags and asorted c@#p that I fish in its not that suprising..

    However I have just brought a mould to make 6 oz sinkers and made up a few already

    Liquid lead is dodgy stuff, I prefer to spend a bit more and give others the pleasure of playing with the stuff. In saying that, I have heaps of old lead pipes and other scrape laying about.

    When I was young my dad use to make lead sinkers in the inside fire. Us kids use to love crowding around watching it melt and the sinkers get made. A few years later he moved the production line outside and used a gas cooker and maybe gloves and overalls.

    If I ever made it I would wear full protection probably including a gas mask, or atleast a full face protector. But I am not really motivated in that direction. Would prefer to spend the time designing and modifying and building different rigs.

    Just a quick question..

    What advantages/disadvantages does the long tails have over the short ring tail sinkers?

    One disadvantage is if the long tail bends they could modify the direction of a cast.

    long tails will bend out if OTG casting on shingle. I use long tails in sand and short tails on shingle for this reason.

    ball sinker moulds can also be modified to make a fixed grip sinker, 4 – 5 ozs owrks well and will hold in ANY current.

    You can get breakout moulds for around $65 to $70 have a nosey on trade me.

    or get the genie mold at tackletactics or discount fishing supplies.
