    Great tip. 1 coffee straw worked for 4 1oz egg sinkers. I cut the straw with the needle nose, in the takle box. I left about 1/4 inch sticking out of either side of the weight, and just got the flame close enough to heat it, but not catch it on fire. The straw just rolls it self down like if you rolled your socks down your leg. I didn't even have to mess with it once it melted down to the lead. flip it, do the other end. Worked perfectly, did 4 in a matter of 2 minutes or so, in my car before work. NO muss no fuss. I haven't used one yet, but sometimes you can just tell that an item is going to do exactly what it is supposed to do.

    I was using the bullet sinkers before so I wouldn't have to use a bead, but I still had to carve out all the rough edges at the ends.

    Thanks for the tip.
