I am looking for sacks or bags that you can put lead in. About a year ago someone on the forum was making them. Any ideas where they are available? Thank You Joe

I just did this in my boat. I went to Home Depot and got thick plastic bags and put them in $7 small tool bags that zipped from Harbor Frieght. Weigh them out at 50lb each and you are set to go!

Stage bags work too if you know anybody in the theater.

I have about 800lbs of this works great! They are 40lbs a sack and have handles which makes them easy to move around. They are easy to work with. I had the sacks dropped shipped to a local shipping company and picked them up there.

I have a bunch of the pop-product bags. They are good, but I have busted a few bags. The best I have seen by far are the leadwake bags. I dont know if he has a website, but you can try leadwake@yahoo.com. I know he will sell just the bags.

PM me, I have a buddy who makes 50 lbs lead sacks.... super legit. they weight 10 lbs more than the pop-products bags, take up a lot less space, are about the same price, and are better quality imo.

Love my Pop bags. I guess they could break if you move them around a lot. Mine have been through 6 different boats since I got them and they're all still totally intact.

This is what I do... These "husky" tool bags can be bought from Home Depot for about $9... Then just fill with lead. I lined them with a couple of target plastic bags and weigh them with a bathroom scale. I've now got 4 movable, durable 50 lb ballast bags for a decent price....
