Matt, those weights I gave you were made for big water. The ones I have like that are on my Puddlers only. I know what you mean; I wouldn’t want to trek into a spot to far with those. Mine go from boat to bag into the garage. That’s an easy fix I also made a ton of lighter ones, I just didn’t poor so much lead into the molds.
Matt if you want we can re-smelt them if you want to no prob
Jim it sounds like you need to use a softer lead, not all dead is the same. I believe lead you would get from tire weights is a harder lead than what you would get from what they used on piping.
SIDE NOTE: Go to your local transfer site sometimes they get lead in there and don’t know what to do with it. I told the boys at mine to keep their eyes out for some and before you knew it I had two 5-gallon pales of it waiting for me
