    I have some decoys rigged with pyramids clipped to the line with snap swivels. I like your way better because there is no ring or swivel to fail. I think I would turn the weight the same way mine clip on though. I like that pyramids dig in a little bit with the wide end toward the decoy. Looks like I will be drilling some pyramids to use on Texas rigs. :tu

    The mold has a pin welded in the center so no drilling.

    We tie them that way so they you can shake the other lines off easy. Most of the bottoms were I hunt have enough mud they settle in with the weight.

    A set of craftsman wrenches seems to work pretty well

    Billy Bob,

    what do you mean by half hitch?

    Look at this: http://www.knutsondecoys.com/rigging/molds.html

    At the bottom there are Lil Mac molds, are those H weights? They look different.

    Those aren't what I call H weights. Hard for me to explain a half hitch with words as I'm terrible with descriptions. It's probably something you already know. It's pretty much a loop made in the line by twisting it and then putting it over the weight or the keel of the decoy. It's quick and keeps itself tight with the pressure of the decoy pulling against the anchor. It's very simple and it would take about 2 seconds for someone to show you.

    I make and sell J weights and H weights, my next venture is neck weights. I usually sell a lot more 4 ounce than anything else but have all 3 weights (4, 6 and 8).

    That thick line is a lot easier on cold hands also! Those are interesting weights! Not a lot of pyramid anchors or crab pots in Kentucky...

    I've used the half hitch for years but most of my buddies can't do it for some reason????

    You should probably consider offering the big egg sinkers as most seem to want Texas rigs. Post up picks of your products; You might sell a few!
