    Over the years i tried many of the drift weights on the market and some of the ones that many of the guides use. I came up with a idea and tried it. Over the last few weeks I used it it has no real drag bouce with fewer missed strikes. so get a pad and pen and here it is.
    supplies needed;
    1. 1/4" silcone aquarium tubing.
    2. a barrel swivle to fit inside the tubing
    3. use a bass casting sinker the type with the brass wire going through it.
    4. 4 shot lead if handy.
    5. 30 lb test line
    the sinker weight is up to you i use 3/8oz most of the time. i only drift in 15' to 30' most of the time but i have some heaver ones as well.

    Ncfowler, if you'll take a few pics of your rigs and if possible the making of one, I'll put this in the library. Sounds like a great idea and I know all our members would love to see this. Thanks for sharing with us.
