I had an idea born out of necessity, and went to see where I should post it, and I dont see where it would best fit. I think we need a "General Tips and Tricks" catagory. Anyhow, I'm gonna get to my idea, but if this gets moved, Sorry, and Thanks. :roll_eyes: I hate the idea of my sinkers rattling around my rods scarring them up when transporting them. I have tried wrapping the drop line with the bank sinker around the pole when I am running a 3 way, but it always seems to rattle around. When I Carolina rig with a no roll slip sinker or egg, I have tried velcro wraps to keep the sinker tight to the rod and they just wont stay put. I needed some way to pad the sinkers, that was quick and easy to put on, take off, and keep track of. The wife and I were at the WalMart doing the weekly thing, and lo and behold, the answer to my problems. Those rubber change purses that grandma used to give me silver out of when I was a pup, you know the ones, looks like a flat rubber football with a slit down one flat side. Those lil guys envelop the sinker and the line feeds out of the top on a drop rig, or out either end on a Carolina rig. Cheap too, about 64 cents apiece. They work great, especially in a verical rod rack on rough waters, no clanging sinkers against the rod blank. Just thought I would share this lil idea with ya'all. Maybe it will help someone out. Later, WRB.
