Throw Weights by Weaver Leather
Sleek, aerodynamic design helps increase the range of the throw
Available in multiple color options and sizes, these throw weights are the perfect accessory for arborists. Ropes, wires, and hoses easily attach to the dee ring, creating no limit for the high and distant locations demanded on the job.
- The moving action of the No.8 shot that fills these Cordura weights helps prevent the weights from hanging up in tree branches.
- The coated lead shot is contained in a latex pouch for environmental protection.
- A 7/8" nickel plated ring for attachment of a rope or poly pilot line is box-stitched to each weight.
- Weight is screen printed on material for easy identification.

In the past, I took a 3 oz lead fishing sinker and flung it up and over with some kite string, or the like. It worked most of the time, but I always worry about that lead weight cracking my skull open, even with a hardhat!
I purchased this this past week to get a line up into the broken branches. Gave it a good swing, a few tosses, and got lucky...the weight went up and over, the line was smooth as silk, and slid nicely, did not hang up on the oak bark, and then I was able to tie and pull the rigging rope right up. Yanked the branches out with my truck
The weight bag stitching looks ok, D ring if good. Line is smooth. One complaint is the mess when I tried to untangle the rope out of the bag, and straighten the twists, etc. It was a twisted, knotted mess. Eventually got it all straight, put the line into small bucket, and it was ready for use. The line is a bit stiff, but I expect it will soften with a few more tosses. The color is easy to see when there are no leaves. No idea yet if I'll see it in the leaves.
My son and I both learned the hard way to be sure there is absolutely no skin in contact with the rope when launching it - the rope causes intense skin burns really quickly when moving at high speeds. If you really need to let the rope slip lightly through your hands to be able to stop it after it reaches the branch you want, then wear leather gloves, long sleeves and long pants.
I purchased and am happy to recommend the 16 oz. I never had to fear it not coming right back down after a throw, even through thick branches. To get it high up, we strapped a water balloon launcher onto a T-shaped 8' long 2x4 rig I built to launch the bag up to the high branches with rather good accuracy and plenty of inertia. That also added some good fun to our father-son branch trimming project.
