    Anyone know where to get these sinkers? If they are sinkers I would love to give them a try.

    Benny, never seen anything like that before, the closest thing I know of are the blackfish sinkers sold by Atlantic Lead Company. They are basically the top half with out the trokar point. Perfect for dropping into tight places.

    Yes if I’m thinking of the same one. It kind of looks like a baseball bat? If these fall straight and that point sticks into the sand they would be great surf sinkers.

    Water resistance from sinker, line and bait hitting the water,
    will prevent it from really sticking into the sand in any meaningful way.

    Go to Basspro, search "surf sinker"
    several different types.
    Many dealers sell these sinkers.

    Sea Striker Sputnick longtail,
    or another brand in that style,
    works well.

    Cast out, reel up slack, reel until
    sinker prongs grab the sand or mud, fish.
    Pull hard to release from bottom.

    I doubt they will sink with the point down with the weight centered in the middle. They look pretty but I don’t see them working better than what is available everywhere. Let us know how they work.

    Now if you could put some tungsten in the point and then lead the rest of the way, maybe they would spike into the bottom...maybe.

    I’m not sure if this site is selling the sinkers or the molds. For $62 it has to be more than a sinker. BTW I’d love to fish on your boat, and I’ll even bring the sinkers. Lol

    They sell the molds.

    Figured you would be all over these too

    SLOW PITCH JIGGING MOLDS, "COCKROACHES"
    https://www.abbocca.it/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=59

    You have your own in house tackle shop.
    Next on your path, in house Slow Pitch Jig manufacturing.
    Slap a jigskinz over it, and off you go.

    Yes I saw these! I guess they sell these for the knockoffs. That’s way too much work for me. I rather spend the cash and have a bunch delivered that are done the right way.
