Ok, so it was some kind of a proprietary device ?
yes. Pretty awesome really. Sad other BP vendors are not marketing them. You listening to me Halcyon.

I just don't log dives
Take the weight set to a good machine shop and they can make you another set.

Would love to help you but I only have the “long” plates. If anybody is looking for a Long DSS Backplate w/ weight panels…I have some. :)

There are some "shot bag" alternatives for mounting lead to the plate but they are all weak sauce compared to the DSS plates.

The problem with going to a machine shop is those of us that want to have some made don't have any weight plates and those of us with a pair already have no need to take them to a machine shop.

Yeah alas you're stuck with an insanely overpriced weighted STA for singles or a Vweight for doubles. The DSS plates were never a great option with doubles anyway.

Will be taking my large and my medium in to a local machine shop to see if they can craft me some weights but its that small BP that eludes me still. Would still purchase originals if offered too.
