The cannonball sinker is also ideal for breakwall and jetty fishing. By having a perfectly round sphere shape, it has no hard edges to snag in harsh rocky conditions. The brass eye at the top allows for easy tying! The cannonball sinker is often referred to as a salmon ball, or salmon weight, as well as a bounce ball weight or bounce ball. The reason for this title, is because they are often used in bounce ball rigs for halibut trolling. This method of fishing causes the fisherman to lose a lot of weights though.. so your best bet is to get them from us where they're cheap!
Another thing about our cannonball sinkers that separates us from the competition, is that we use CNC machine molds to cast ours. This makes them extremely accurate in weight, and MOST of them within +/- 0.1 of an oz accuracy.
