    Got the shrink wrap, and I bought some epoxy for the ends. Now I just have to borrow a blowtorch from the super in my building to put it together - last time I did it on the stove and that was suboptimal. :)

    Will post pix.

    OK, I finished the project, and they work just fine! I used 12" x 1" lead rods (3.8 lbs each) from this supplier.

    Then I used this heat shrink tubing to coat the rods, leaving a small sleeve at either end.

    Then I filled both ends with epoxy, embedding a small zip-tie loop in one of the ends on each rod. Finally, I just put a loop of cave line around the plastic loop from the zip tie. Works fine, easy to place and remove.

    Thanks for everyone's help!
