I made some new non-return slides with my new tool, after I welded it together earlier. I silver soldered them instead of just wrapping the wire and they came out pretty good. I will be making more of them, but I will be adding slip sinkers to those, for a little extra weight. I'm not sure if they will be needed or not, but this whole thing is an experiment and just another way for me to try and catch a fish. I'm having fun so far, so that is all that I can really be assured of right now. Have a great day!
