The weights with a swivel at the top work for me - like you, there isn't a lot of choice in my local tackle shops, either. I find that the pyramids hold better, bit don't seem to cast as well.
I prefer to use a snap connector to attach the weight, allowing for quick and easy changes of weight when conditions change. It might also help prevent abrasion of the line from being dragged through the sand?

When you are on the beach and there is nothing between you and NZ other than water, at times the sweep can be very strong...Using a grip lead and a rod rest you get to spend more time fishing than casting.
Pyramid sinkers will give you excercise winding in, as the flat surface is against you. The idea is to grip while 'out' there and be easy to wind in, hence the grip wires that unclip and fold to a more streamlined shape for winding in.

Years ago, when holidaying at Hervey Bay, I bought some sinkers that look like dumpy snapper leads: they have the same hole at the top for securing line, but are pear shape and hexagonal (six sided) rather than four sided. What are those sinkers called? I've a heap of them up to 4 ozs. How do they rate as surf sinkers?
