    Here is what I do with old cast net sinkers instead of melting them back and using a mold. One is a swivel at one end with a paper clip for the other eye, the other one is made using a barrel swivel and a clip on swivel attached together and the center is poured with melted lead.

    Good thinking, I may have to try that. Some of my bank sinkers I hook a good size snap swivel to it with heavy line. That way I can go up or down in weight sizes by just snapping on a different weight.

    That a good idea.

    But It defeats one of the purpose of a carolina rig the peace of lead doesn't snap back when the fish hits it. It's a good idea though
