Default Pete's sinkers

Now that Pete has lead poisoning, according to his website, who are you buying weights from?

That's very sad to hear. I use Leadbandit very good prices and 1 price shipping. https://squareup.com/store/lead-bandit

Yes, handling molten lead day in and day out is very hazardous to one's health. I wish Pete a full recovery soon.

Just got a final shipment from Pete, wishing him a speedy recovery.

Also need a new reasonably priced source for 16oz and 20oz banks.

Leadbandit used to be a sponsor here. Things didn't go so well...

**_______________** SINKERS $2.56 per lb! $5 flat rate shipping **________________**

Anyone have issues with Lead Bandit sinker company?

When I emailed him last month he said he was still open but was backed up. I put an order in but it may take a couple months.

Dales homemade tackle (check him out on Facebook)

dalestackle.com

ran across him on FB a while back and is pretty awesome to deal with and very fast on orders, even very large one. Prices are hard to beat as well

Just placed an order with Pete last week and it shipped already. I think he is still taking orders but possibly is slowing down a little?

I just wanted to thank Pete. He's doing fine and processing orders as usual. I placed my order and received them in less then a week.
