i used to by these graps from basil manning they are verry similar to normal graps only thing is the wire is alot thicker and also the main shaft on the grap is twice the length of the normal grap. {Sand Anchors}

does anyone know ho else besides basil manning may have them because they are always out of stock and dont have all the different weights.they seem to only keep 9 and 10 ounce.i need to find some 7 and 8 ounce asap.

a wholesaler would be great thanks guys.

Hi Riymos,

I picked up a couple of thick wire  8 oz graps from fishermans warehouse on Saturday and they seemed to have sufficient stock.

Hey Reymos,

Now I know which ones you are talking about, Those I have only seen at Basil Maning's and no where else.

In fact I have 2 of those in 8 oz, If you dont manage to get any 8 oz you're welcome to the 2 that I have.

We make our own grapling sinkers. I use spring steel wire (get it from a factory that makes springs). The wire does rust, but by the time it's rusted, you've normally lost your sinker anyway.

These work particularly well in the rocks, as the sinker seems to bounce off the rocks when reeling in.

Hi Riymos

For spring--which is actuall high tensile steel you will able to get from E>E>Tarr in Pinetown..you would need to give the diameter and lenght of the products you looking for..if you looking for small lengths you might be able to source their offcuts at a reduced price...tel 031-7172251  or Springrite 031-7053515.

Good Luck

Jace
