Lead loops

644 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  David Gould
In anticipation of a trip out today, I cast up a handful of 6oz boat leads yesterday, and had to use 1mm diameter galvanised garden wire for the loops.
I would have used stainless steel wire, but had none of an appropriate size hanging about.
The breaking force required for the existing loops is about 70 kg, so for boat fishing, it's ample.
Might use solid copper wire for the next batch, though, if I can't source some 1.5 mm stainless wire.
