1/4" lead coils

Help!

In the past, I've use some 1/4" lead that came in a coil for ballast.

I can't find the source where I got it.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

If you are referring to the hollow coiled lead I ran in to some at cabalas the other day. It was the stuff you cut off a length then thread it on your line. If you cant find it just drill a hole in the middle of two peaces of wood or metal if you want it to last longer. Pour down the middle of the two. Easier than looking good luck.

Thanks to everyone for their help. You guys are the best.

I bought a 5lb, 20' roll from McMaster Carr. That should last me for a while. At 8 grams to the inch, that's a lot of ballast.

Talk about great service, I ordered the lead wire yesterday, and it arrived, UPS, today!

McMaster Carr rocks!

$30 plus per 5lb. coil seems pretty expensive. i get 5lb. roll at Sprtsmans warehouse for $18. most places here sell a 1 lb. roll for around $3.50. check Walmart. they sell it.

I can get it locally here in Oregon at Wal-Mart but it is popular here for steelhead fishing so I'm not sure you can get it everywhere.
