These are 1/2 once chrome torpedo sinkers from back in the albacore days. I got to thinking that maybe I could pound one side flat to possibly give it some action. I thumped it with a big hammer on a 2X4 to cushion the other side and used needle nose pliers to hold it steady. I tried it with 1 ounce chromies I had but the plating popped off. I'm going to use a Cast O' Bubble with birdshot in it filled with water that weighs out at 2.5 ounces bringing the total weight to over 3 ounces. I'll be running a 5' 100# fluorocarbon leader from the bubble to the jig. I hung the altered jig from a 50# bucket of lead for 4 hours with no sign of deformation. We'll see if this exercise was worth it or a big waste of time.
