Weights

Post by Krish2007 » February 10th, 2020, 2:45 pm

Hi everyone,
I recently had the privilege to go the the recent Centerville tournament, where I got to talk to the person who wrote the rules for mission possible. There I was told that the weights that I was using are illegal at nationals, since they were made of lead. I need to replace these weights before state, so I was hoping you could help. I use fish sinkers right now, which are almost always lead, so I was wondering if anyone knows how to find sinkers that are not lead that weigh 3-4 oz (about 100 grams). Also, if someone knows about some dense material or thing that weighs about 3-4 oz, that would be great. Thanks in advance!

OMG thanks for bringing that up, I also have lead weights in my Mission. Unfortunately, I don't know any other types of weights and am currently looking.

Different sizes of washers can be used and attached easily.
