I started crimping "round shot" split shots on twisted SS wire... its a tough rig and easy to make. I also got some egg sinkers to try and crimp on too.

Cabalas has what is called hollow core pencil lead in sizes up to 1/4 inch dia. just cut off the length you need. The hole is already punched thru the lead and makes adding hook hanges very easy. I make my own hanger and insert it thru the hole, bend each on the wires at a 90 degree angle and cut off. Glue the lead in place with D2T and you can pull it out.
