Lead Ballast Favorites?

Looking to maybe ad some lead ballast. Those who have ordered who would you recommend?

Thank you

I ordered 175lbs from this company a month ago. The bags seem well made. I trade to order from bombwake but never heard back. I think that company was sold.

When you say you tried to order--what did you actually do? Did you order/pay for them and the product didn't arrive?

I've ordered from them twice and both times went flawlessly. I was about to order a couple more bags and want to check it out before I do.

Great thread. I have looked around but have not found good recommendations.

They don't have prices on their site. How much was your 175lbs delivered

+ 1 on lead wake. ICBW, but these are the only actual "lead" products. The others are steel shot and take up more room.
