I've started using bank sinkers that I have put on my anvil and flattened out. They cast good and seem to hold well without getting stuck on stuff. I did this at first because bank sinkers are cheaper and easier to find in the sizes I like but now am using them because I really like them.
I also do the same with egg sinkers. I put a rod in them before I flatten them then pull it out. I first did this when I was catfishing in a small creek using light spinning gear and wanted some 3/8 and 1/2 oz no roll sinkers. They worked fine so I just started doing it to all sizes. The stores around here just don't carry a good assortment of weights. they are so fixated on bass tackle that catfish stuff is just sort of an after thought.
I agree with these comments...and sometimes must make my own equipment.
I do like the no rolls for most fishing situations, but not all.
