DIY vs Kit Texas rigs cost

Postby Irish Lad » Sun Jul 28, 2013 3:51 pm

Just some info if you are thinking about the cost effectiveness of doing it yourself. This is what it cost me to rig 4 dozen decoys(with some left over stuff). I live in a small town in Utah so shipping costs hurts :sad: It was fun rigging them with my 12 year old grandson :thumbsup: As you can see it is cheaper to DIY, especially if you have more time than money.

Weights: 4 oz egg sinkers (50) $27.00
Shipping $12.00

Swivels: 2/0 (72) $ 14.98
Tax & shipping $ 7.00
$ 21.98

Line: 400 lb pre cut (200) $ 9.90
Crimps: (100) $ 3.90
Carabineers: (4) $ .85
Shipping & handling $ 17.71

The total is $95.89 or $23.98 per dozen
