The following are where our order shortages occur based on a minimum order of 1000 per size and color.


Tungsten Dumbbells

Small Silver - 800
Medium Silver - 800

Brass dumbbells

Small - Brass colored - 800
Small - Red - 800

3-D Eyes

Small - silver - 800
Medium - Silver - 800
large - silver - 900

Small - gold - 800
Medium - gold - 800
Large - gold - 900

Let me know if there is a way to consolidate these into something that will work. I will need to make my final changes as soon as possible.

Brad...".that you need to make a 1000 count?" - Yes

At this point, I am adding: 1000 1.5mm tungsten beads -red.
1000 1.5mm tungsten beads- blue
1000 small tunsten dumbells - silver
1000 medium tungsten dumbells -silver
1000 small brass dumbells - brass? or silver?
1000 medium brass dumbbells - brass or silver???

Help me with some orders because I really don't need many dumbbells. This puts us up to 125,000 beads, cones and dumbbells.

I'll be counting on some support with the movement of a lot of these dumbells. I'll gladly take a hundred of each and will go to two hundred of each if it is necessary.

I don't know what your take is on the 3-d eyes. Please advise.

Please give me any and all ideas. I need to submit any changes as soon as possible.

.I would like to add 1,000 large 3D in "silver" color. ($56.00, if I read it correctly - the numbers off the right are confusing but I whatever it comes out to is fine). Maybe I can get someone to go in with me once they are here. And/or I am sure there are some worthy causes that might want some, too.

Others don't seem to to want 3D, so don't worry about 3D in other sizes.

Breaking it down, the general options are brass or tungsten. (Tungsten costs maybe 3-4x as much in small and medium, but still not bad in small and medium). Each metal can then come in various finishes. Is the silver finish the consensus? That is my person preference, but again, I am flexible.

The next choice for brass is either (a) brass dumbbell with two ends concave USD per thousand or (b) brass dumbell with two ends protruding USD per thousand.

"Protruding" in brass costs more but also weighs more, apparently in a close ratio. For comparison, size medium (silver-finished bras) is priced at $42.08 (.6g) concave and v. $61.60 (.8g) in rounded. I suggest we go with rounded brass in silver color.

Aaron, I sent an email to Blake ordering some dumbbells when you forwarded me the email. Thanks. As to what we need to fill out any dumbbell order, I'm game for whatever we need to do. I can use a thousand the way I can lose them. I think I ordered mostly tungsten but brass is just fine too, I can use both. Ya'll just let me know how many and what I owe. Allan

Speaking of dumbbells, what are 3D eyes?
All I can picture are the stick-on eyes that attach to the dumbells.

That's what I think they are, too. No doubt they have their detractors. :? :lol: Sometimes, however, I can get them to stick for a few casts. I like the look so I thought I would keep frustrating myself with them.

Has anyone figured out how to put a dot on the regular dumb bells? That might work just as well.

The BEST eyes I have ever found came from Table Rock Angler. Somehow the pupil is part of the eye and cannot possibly come off. I have gold and nickel. The only downside for the ones I have is that they are huge - 1/4 oz eyes - tough to cast but they look great. I thought they would be the ticket for Weldon but I am now convinced that the right sinking line and a lighter-weight fly is the best option for that river.

Per Aaron..."I suggest we go with rounded brass in silver color."

Please let me know if this suits everyone.

The silver color will replace the requests I received for black nickel, red, and brass(color).

*** If possible, I would like to send in the final edit to our order by 8:00 pm.

Please add
100 - 1.5mm tungsten beads - red.
100 - small tungsten dumbells - silver
or the closest match to each that will work.
