I'm so adept at losing cannonballs that I've wised up and switched to gangion line tied to a coastal lock. Make my own clips by buying the Scotty clips (just the clip with no line or ferrule) and tying on 200# mono. Buy the 15# balls on Craigslist in bulk. Out the door cost is down to $33 US. Not so painful anymore. Dragging bottom for black mouth across the border takes its toll.
