    I lost my special weight and had to come up with a half baked substitute recently... I had a 1 oz fishing weight, considerably smaller in diameter than the airboss weight. I wrapped it with black tape around the body to make it a bit "fatter". It still was pretty loose, about .050 undersize. I was able to launch it once, it went high enough to do what I needed, and my antenna is up. But the weights he has seem much better.

    I lost all mine and picked some up at a local salt water bait shop in Salisbury MA. they had just the hole thru the center, I made a loop out of #14 Cu wire, ran it down the center hole and twisted a lump on the other end to keep it from pulling out.
    Operator error, I kept forgetting to open the bail one the reel!

    After using up all of my Airboss weights, I used a 9/16 " socket, a 1/4-20 x 3/4 " slotted truss head machine screw, a 1/4 " metal washer and a 1/4 " nut. I inserted the screw
    through the open end of the socket, attached the washer and tied the fishing line between the washer and nut. This works well but can get expensive after losing a few sockets.
    I sent this message along to a popular ham web site but it was not given approval as of this date, 9/20/21.
