Work with me here guys......If I was to make one of these out of a 2 or 3oz No Roll Sinker from my Do-it Mold and run the hoochie from near the back on one of the flat sides........That could end up giving a pretty interesting action to the lure.......

You can try and see what the action’s like. I’ve never payed attention to to the action of these weights BUT I’m thinking it might give more action than the other ones.

When I use my flattened 5 ounce torpedo weights to hold my rigs down, they always seem to flutter on the way down or when retrieving. That lure idea might be interesting to see.

me thinks the round mold would be difficult pour ....
That particular type has a "Pour Trench" that fills all the cavities at the same time......you have to do a good sized ladle pour.......a Production pot WILL NOT WORK......and the Mold has to be HOT.......I warm mine in a toaster oven
