    The only flat sinkers that I know of is the NoRool and The River Sinker the no rool sinker is like the egg it has a hole through the center and the river sinker has a # 2 brass eyelet you can buy bank sinkers and take a hammer and make them flat i did that until i bought a no roll mold

    Thanks, I was wondering if the lead would hold up to the pounding of being made flat. Any advice, or just wail away with the old ball peen.

    warm the sinkers up on the stove the pound it flat. pliers and welding gloves will be a big help. i am not suggesting that you hold your sinker over an open flame.
