Default Deep Drop Weights

Any recommendations for 5 lb. weights?

Looks like lead-bandit has a two week backorder.

I just pulled a bunch of window sash weights out of a dumpster for this purpose. 4-7 lbs each.

Good morning gentlemen,

It has been a while since I have been on the forum. I finally got time 5am in the morning to sit down and respond to the kudos above. I thank you. I took a fall in March on my rt shoulder and after a MRI it appears I may have to have surgery on this olde f--t body. Or go to plan B and say let it heal itself. Time will tell. Not sure if you have access to Facebook, but see my site Pete McFarlane. I have a new toy that is going to save me a lot of time and my back from picking up 30-40 lbs of hot lead at a time. The guy in Idaho is a genius. I can really crank out the DDS's in a short period of time.

Again thank you for the kudos and still here cranking out the "da lead" and having fun doing it. I may even go fishing one day. Off to Tybee Isl this week.
Retirement is gooooood!
Be safe!

Pete

Hey Pete,
Get well. If you have the time and patience let it heal, the body is amazing.
