Martin - Phone might be quite limited on what UK style gear he can get his hands on.

All,

 

I can "pull the plug" out of the end (the colored end).  Can it be filled with water to a desired weight and the plug replaced?  

 

Martin, It's not only hard to get but even harder to imagine in two dimensions.  That's my problem - "gripper stop" equals Greek.

 

Some I won't mind getting off the net - but some is $3.00 purchase price and $9.00 shipping and handling.  You know that "drill" no doubt

OHH

 

The brass in the picture is some much lighter metal (maybe even tungsten)  why wouldn't it be heavy like brass or lead?

Was going today, got 12cm SNOW and -2C -  In my county the earliest accumulated snow was Oct 17 - so much for that record

The Gripper stops are almost weightless rubber!! Not brass.

Martin,

 

Steady man (ha ha) - It just looked like in your post #20, you had inserted a URL or photo.  I didn't mean to get you all riled up.

Phone, the ends can be pulled out because they are interchangeable. I wouldn't put water in them, you want them to cast like a dart, water will move. And the loaded ones will probably not have much excess shot capacity anyway, you'll want to use the shot down the line.

Used to be a couple of completely modular plastic float systems, with bodies, stems, tips, etc. Don't think anyone makes anything quite like that now.
