    you dont need them sock weight drift sinkers,

    instead use a egg weight but it has to be the oval and you will find they work better.

    Key is oval 1 1/2 OZ is what I use and in high winds 2 OZ but it must be oval not the semi round ones.

    Don't use 1/4 oz weights....the drift sinker will be too short.

    Watch this video: YouTube - How To Make Flexible Drift Weights

    Don't use paracute cord. Too hard to load shot into.

    Save this link in your favorites section to keep up with it... Opening Spring 2011 Hopefully by mid April, everything will be ready to go with that deal. We are starting out with 3/4 and 1 1/2 ounce but more weight options will be available after a while depending on how it goes. This will be the cheapest, already made slinky weights, with the snap swivel... that you can get. As of now, you can get the Large parachute cord that's easy to stuff at www.tackleforcatfish.com along with the easy to stuff shot. Theres some small diameter parachute cord out there that is a pain to stuff but this is not, it can hold shot that's big enough that only takes 7 of them to make a little more than an ounce. That makes for a very short length slinky weight which reduces drag but is heavy enough to keep it on the bottom.

    This is the material that I've used to make mine with for years and a business minded buddy of mine has come up with a way to make them for a very cheap price that are already made if you dont want to make them yourself. I'm not knocking anybodies way of doing it so I dont expect my way to be knocked either but these links are where everything can be purchased in one place at one time to either make yourself or already have pre-made for you.
