Hourglass Brass Eyes Discontinued!
For years I've sang the praises of Wapsi's Hourglass Brass eyes as a lead dumbell alternative thats tougher, safer, shinier, easier to tie in, etc. Well, I've learned that they've been discontinued. Like, already out of production, so if you're also a fan, you better buy up all you can. If anybody knows of a replacement, please let us all know.

Re: Hourglass Brass Eyes Discontinued!
I don't know if Spirit River supplied the eyes for Wapsi and they have discontinued them as well. I tried to get on the Spirit River website but it was not running for a bandwidth problem. Spirit River has several different types of eyes that are lead alternatives and it may be a place to replace the Wapsi source.
