PostSubject: Are Your Weights Safe ?   Mon Mar 30, 2015 7:54 pm

Clearing through and sorting some tackle out recently I came across a good number of leads which are no longer safe to use as the connecting loop has rusted to a point where it could snap off if put under any strain and you can imagine the damage a flying lead could do to someone if it broke loose during a cast Exclamation

Mine are now in the melting bucket ready for recycling into new weights, when I get round to it Rolling Eyes  

A good healthy loop should look like this

And not like this

Once a weight is used the loop is bound to rust on the surface but to ensure it hasn't rusted right through, like so many that are found on the beach have done, try bending it left and right with your fingers and if there's any movement at all then don't take the risk, its not worth injuring someone or worse Wink bye
