    I have used them and you lose gap in your hook by the diameter of the lead. I believe they are ok on gar but would not advise them on paddle fish or even carp. I believe you be better off on a 10/0 and bank sinker tied short.:confused2:

    do it sells mold blanks, and you can goto your local machine shop and they can custom make the exact mold you want. i think that may be what you are looking for. that is iif you can't find the exact one you are looking for.

    The lead will end up being the inside diameter of the pipe. Cool idea. :cool2:

    I was thinking along the same line except, I was thinking of making it of hardwood,(oak) drilling an 1 1/4 hole then cut the notches for the hook to set in. After the first use or so, the chard wood would have made for very easy release of the lead/hook combo.

    My thoughts on the pipe mold is your gonna have fun getting it out on account of the threads. I might be wrong but who knows. If this is so you could take a die grinder and a burr and eat the threads away so it will come out easy. Im thinking this as pipe threads are tapered and not stright like bolt threads.
