Default Cheapest for Sinkers???

I haven't called Bottomdwellers.com but it seems like their website carried more varieties of sinkers about 18 mos ago than now. Does anybody know a cheap sinker website?
Schmitty
OH, BTW, I'm re-buying alll the sinkers I bought 18 mos ago because of the scum that stole my boat and they were on there.

I can't say for sure that they're the cheapest, but Leadbandit, a THT sponsor is a good choice.

Leadbandit was my 1st thought too, but according to their website...still not taking orders.

I recommend this lead bandit guy. His business grew too fast and he couldnt keep up. Great guy. Hopefully he overcomes it.

Check ebay. Flat rate boxes have made mailing lead no issue at all.

The local scrap yard has any size and style lead sinker you can imagine. They sell it to me for the daily cost of lead. It Doesnt get cheaper than that.

Try your local scrapyard or metal recycle company. I say this because we own one. We buy/sell thousands of pounds of lead yearly. A lot of what we buy is brand new sinkers from 1/2 oz up to 25 lbs. Worth a try. Shipping is a killer so hopefully you can get it locally.

Birdbath is correct. We sell it for exactly what the daily price we would get for it. Doesn't get any cheaper.

That link for the petes website seems to have good prices but I've been using a guy out of Pensacola. Name of the company is: Bird of Prey Fishing Tackle. Don't think they have a website but they do have a facebook page. They were offering free shipping on orders over $100 although I'm not sure if it is still available.

My local scrap yard (and there are over three) don't sell sinkers, they will sell lead but no sinkers.

I just go on ebay and do the math. I have found that anything around 2 bucks a lb is an acceptably decent deal, many will have free shipping.

Absolutely! Pete is the lead-man. Good stuff, cheap and fast. Seems to be a real nice guy as well.
