    I saw in an earlier post, people were looking for tips on finding slinky weight materials. I found this site a few months ago. They have the cord and buckshot in a couple sizes. Just don/t waste your money on the loading tool like I did. I found it was too large for cord. I used a straw. Awesome folks to deal with. http://fishermanshack.net/mcart/index.cgi

    Buck, using my wife's iron to seal slinky's would not be well received in my house:big_smile: I melt the end of the slinky with a match (or candle if I'm doing a bunch of them) and crimp it flat with a pair of pliers before it cools. Then punch a hole in the flat area with an awl and you're done (and you're wife will still be speaking to you...unless you've given her another reason not to:wink:)

    bought cheap soldering gun use it to cut and seal the cord. You can put in several lengths of weights (SPACED) and then cut them at one time. Works good for me.:wink:
