Diy Punching Weights

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I want to start punching some heavy(ish) mats, and I don't want to buy punching weights. Does anybody have a do it yourself solution or any ways to rig a bullet weight for punching? Thanks!!

how dense are the mats you want to punch? would you need a one ounce bullet weight in tungsten to punch through them?

 I believe I have seen  bare unpainted punch weights that you can put skirts on the internet.  Or it possible could have  been a mold for pouring  punch weights.

Do it makes a punch weight mold but it only goes to 9/16oz. I have it and it works well for thinner vegetation or laydowns. I just tie my own skirts onto it but you could buy banded skirts and do the same.20160412_104848_zpsb3qx9w8x.jpg

I got a bunch of old bell type sinkers from my Dad's old tackle box that we used back when we fished for cat a lot.  I got a pair of heavy cutters and removed the wire that went down the center of the weights.

If I understand your question. ..Just buy any bullet weight you want in the size you want and peg it to the hook useing a bobber stop or an insert.
