    Default Lead makers - not Korda or Fox..

    Does anyone know of a good lead maker(s), I want a specific design and good quality.

    I've done a google search but just get tackle shops.

    Cheers - will check them out of FB then.

    I'm after a longer than usual distance/tournament - more stretched chandelier shaped, without swivel, non-gloss and certain colour, super discreet.

    Do you know anyone that makes their own sea leads ?

    It sounds like a sea fishing type lead mould you need or someone would need to make them ? Have a look on some sea fishing sites.but then the postage might be a bit ?

    I've asked Potty to make some specific styles of lead in the past and he's always done a good job.

    I need a coating on them but one that will absorb liquid - to stain them (tea bags stain) and no big old spikes sticking out the side!

    I use 5-12 oz leads of the shape you want though mate.you can get them.normal shaped leads and elongated leads without the spikes.
    Look around or ask anyone that makes leads see if they have a mould. Staining any leads pretty easy.

    I've always stained mine with tea, but the coating I used to use isn't available these days (i'm talking a long time ago) - other than that I was thinking a thin cloth jacket for the leads or tape.

    I created a rig a long long time we used to call the Kate Moss rig (Woody, you reading this?! ) which used bank side ground moss trapped on the inline lead, wrapped round drop off style lead long before it was well known (over 10 years ago). Great stalking rig and caught some very wily carp that were previously 'turning' us over.
