    Does anyone make these commercially? We want to find someone who does or wants to start so we can promote them on the TV show.

    Don,
    Do you mean the lead filled fabric type called Flex-O-Sinkers or the PVC tube with the lead rod in the end. As mentioned, the Flexo's are available at Cabelas etc. but I don't know who manufactures them.
    The only place I ever knew of that made the PVC type was called The Oberlin Canteen Company from Oberlin Ohio. I think they went out of business.
    I make my own from soft PVC tube with different amounts of weight in them. They are, without a doubt, the best drift weight you can use...W
