Coatings run wild!!
I don't see it??? What am I missing? lol
I actually bought 4 - 15lbers off this guy last year. He used quality lead and I think I paid 20 each at the time. I think he sells them for $25 now.
Merle's his name, probably one of the better sources of downrigger balls sold privately on the mainland....for those who are looking.
Wow. I hope the colour schemes are a product of an lsd flashback rather than lead fumes. I'd buy 'em though.
member GoGreen (Rich) on here does them too and he is in surrey as well, does a real nice job I use him all the time

I've bought from Merle before as well. He's a good guy and I can recommend his product.

Anybody considering using Plasti-Dip for d/rigger balls.......don't waste your money.
I tried it.......stuff comes off after you put a couple of scratches/dings on the ball.
Do u coat the cannon balls 2 keep lead off your skin
No.....the original reason was to maximize isolate the ball electrically from the wire.
Then colored coatings and Glow came along.
Does add more protection to the ball as well.
The lead poisoning thing is vastly over-rated. The way they spin it you would think there is Cyanide mixed in with the lead.
An occasional handling isn't going to do much.....prolonged exposure will.
Just wash your hands good after.
The last time I coated my balls ......... it all came off in the wash ..... : (
funny mine was the shower
Hey Guys I bought a can of that Polysol stuff. looks like it needs to be heat cured. Anybody know at what temperature and for how long?
Do not do it in your house the out gas and fumes are highly toxic.
Ya don't do it in the house is a given!
If found this on the Web
Gives a pretty good starting point. Tried one last night worked pretty well. I need to improve my dipping technique. Made a little propane fired oven in a steel barrel worked pretty good!
Not really worth it IMHO , but then again never was able to ask a fish
Anyone got a line on 20# balls in Vancouver area? Rich isn’t making any this year he said.
Search CL, there's a guy on the North Shore.
I've bought from him before. No affiliation.
Has nothing to with the fish I just want to protect the boat a little bit
Glow and UV colours are a hoax. They have no attraction properties what so ever.
Seen this and so I kinda agree after 100 ft pretty much any color is lost , so why paint balls ? So does that count for jigs as well (now I'm really confused)
