Float bag update. After acting like a production company since I put this add up. I Just finished all the pieces for the first dozen orders. I found boxes to ship them in, which was a major task. Picking them up today. I will be contacting people thru out this week to confirm shipping info for a small truck load of deliveries on fri. Thanks for all the orders, I think

Delayed shipping. I showed my Dad these bags I have recreated, looking for a little praise I guess. As a father he said nice job. As a retired fisherman, he made a suggestion. Crap. His idea made the nut and bolt heads disappear from the top mechanisms. So because I want these to be the best and most durable out there. I am redoing the top pieces of wood. Sorry for delays, still should start shipping soon. Looking forward to some responses as to what other guys think of these. Thanks

Check your PMs, Don. It looks like you may have gotten me confused with another fellow's order.

I would love to get a 50lb set of these floats, but I'm a new member here and can't pm anyone yet, so if you could get a email to me at fvbounty@comcast.net I would appreciate it!

Thanks for the info, how's the build quality, it looks great in the pictures? Are you going to put a piece of tubing on the parts that clamps on the wire?

Hey just a thought. The tubing is not a bad idea if you think it will protect the wire. I don't think its necessary, but cant hurt. The latches are heat bent, so they are tempered. I can say that because once heated they were hard as hell to cut with a band saw. They will not wear. They are going to be much tougher than the brass style. The ends are not meant to clamp tight to the wire. they just hold the wire to the board. The pressure plate in the middle holds the wire in place. I'm even going to make #5's and try them myself. We can now get 70 lb cannon balls here on the Ore. coast, so I thought I would try it. That is if I ever get to go this year. We are trying to get the bags in our marine stores here, but their mark up is ridiculous. I'm on the fence about that, so we'll see.

The plastic tubing wouldn't hurt, my old Scottys have a plastic clip on them to protect the wire....you should have my check today, can't wait to get them!

Bounty: Just scroll up this page until you see "tunaddict" in blue. Left click on it. A new page will come up. Look down a few lines, and you will see a link to click if you want to send him a pm. Although, didn't he say something about being gone fishing, and people should contact someone else in his absence?

Don if you can call me you sent the wrong floats, you sent me a set of sharing #4 with the name Last Wish on them, you had another person's name with my address on the box? Mine are supposed to be #4 straight!

Is there a Ted Lorenz here and is your boat name Last Wish I have your sharing floats, and you probably have my straight #4's with yellow paint...
