If the split shot were more easily removed, and if this worked better before getting warmed, it would be perfect.

I tried to pour the 3/8 ounce and even after enlarging the gates, I got 2 weights from over 10 attempts. It appears the lead just does not flow to the bottom of the mold.

These are hard to find where I live. What a relief to find them in your catalog. I fish year round and like to make my own tackle when I can. These work great and I will probably invest ina couple more styles at a future date.

The "split" is molded right in. The only cutting involved is removing the spru. You can cut it or twist it off by hand.
Wear gloves, hold the spru (the cone shaped 'scrap' from the gate) w/a plier and twist it off. Or use a gate shear, like a wire cutter but cuts close leaving the sinker/jig nice and smooth. Hint: if you can't find gate shears, Heavy duty toe nail clippers work great. Esp if the spru is on a curved surface.
