Torpedo rigger weights mold?

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a 12# down rigger weight mold in the torpedo shape, a search here and online has come up empty.

Anybody help??

I am running 10# balls now and been reading the Fishhawk unit I just bought will add a lot more blowback and it seems the 12# torpedo shaped weight helps cure that.

TIA

Thanks, I seen them and may end up getting a couple of them, I do have about 250# of lead left over from when I smelted bullets and would like to use that though, if a mold is available.

Little over a hour on the web and no molds found, I ordered two of the Atomiks, thanks.

It might be possible to make a mold or have one made. I use 12 lb round cannon balls and find the blowback with fish hawk probe not that much different then the other side without the probe. You can find molds for them.

Those sharks look great. Not sure if the facets do what they say, but their spiel sounds good:)

Type in 12# fish shape downrigger mold, I just found a couple of place have them. We have a 15# fish mold and use it on the outside riggers with the Depth Raider Probe and very minimal Blowback. We also use the 20# sharks from A-tomic on our inside riggers and love them for deep fishing. Check you Downrigger Weight restrictions, we use Big Jon Brutes which can handle the weight.

I found a guy (VTsalmonslayer) on the Lake Ontario United Fishing Forum who sells 13# torpedo weights and ordered two, I'll have to check but they may be a bit much for my Cannon mag 10 riggers and if so, I'll whittle then down a few pounds.
