    Got me a new set of sinker molds from Do It They are called River Sinkers They have brass Tie To eyes and shaped like a do nut I really like them You can use less weight than with bank sinkers and it will hold you with its no roll design also the ring eyes tie down good and snug The other day I was fishing a 12 oz current using Bank sinkers and they were rolling some I broke off and re rigged with the 10oz river sinker It held just as good and easier to cast

    Yes they are great , I like them because you can add more weight to your slide without having to retie.Alot of people don't like to make their own , it is hard at first to put the brass clip in.After a while though it is no problem.You can realy save some money on making these.

    those look like they would lay down and work well.
