    I just don't think you will find a flat sinker that rolls on the bottom. If anything, a flat sinker will either slide with the current, or may plane up from the bottom depending on the speed of the current or your retreive... Bank sinkers, egg sinkers, etc will roll... depends on what you really want.

    I don't know where you can get flat sinkers that roll. Usually if somethings flat it doesn't roll too well,like a flat tire on your vehicle. If you're looking for a sinker that rolls,I would suggest trying an egg sinker. If you're looking for a sinker that doesn't roll,then I would suggest a no roll sinker. Just depends on what you actually want.

    You can look on ebay for no roll sinkers. Most of the time there are a few sellers with assorterd sizes. Most ship using flat rate boxes so buy up a year or two supplies to help even out the shipping cost.

    He just reposted asking specificly for no roll sinkers. I would invest in a few molds and go to the tire store and get some wheel weights and cast your own if I were you. I think that would be the most economical way. If you have a buddy that you fish with you could split that cost between you.

    I agree with Stephen. Buy the mold and check the tire stores for free lead. Also check out the library and learn how to mold them flat no roll sinkers.:lol: :big_smile:
