Sputnik sinkers for sale?
« on: January 21, 2018, 08:00:51 PM »
All,
Looking to test the waters on possibly selling Sputniks (locally only for now)
I recently purchased molds for 4,5,6, and 7 ounce sputniks and have been producing a few and refining the process, I have also been experimenting with an integrated "splash down clip", as well as an option for a short and long tailed version and a light and heavier gauge of stainless wire legs and tails. I have a couple of guinea pigs already to test out the splash down design, so after feedback I will decide whether to implement this feature on a regular or special order basis. i also have molds to produce 2,3,4,5 ounce egg sinkers. Just trying to see if there is a market, and if so may scale up to meet wider needs.
Prices will be:
$2.50 ea for 4 & 5 ounce
$3.00 ea for 6 7 7 ounce
.25 cents extra for splashdown clip if implemented
Let me know what you all think?










Also have my own logo molded in (JAWS! lmao!)

It's all Tom and Don's fault! They "hooked" me on mud marlins and sharks!

I've got a bunch of 6-8oz sputniks, but I'm going to see how 4oz casts with the new rod. If it works, then I'll be hitting you up. And I like the integrated bait clip down a lot ;D
Anybody have an emergency beer?
