Polypells

I've had absolutely no luck finding polypells over here(other than in tiny expensive packets). Does anyone have a website / tel no where I can mail order purchase a big bag?
Thanks!

Re: Polypells

I use Poly-Pellets, here's a website for more info.

If you can't find them for a decent price I can make a foray and send some to you.

Re: Polypells

Because I was in hurry to get my christmas present up and running. I have resorted to the "beanie Babies". Using two rubber bands you can attach some ole floppy beanie babies to the top of your tripod. Boy, my wife was mad when she caught me with them. I snitched them off the nightstand in the guest room.

Second alternative after my wife got thorough with me was to go to Kmart and look in the "throw pillow section" some of the stupider looking cushions are filled with the little pellets. My wife is too mad at me to sew me a bag so I am just hunting this weekend with the stupid looking pillows and the basset hound and racoon beanie babies (If I get blood on the beanie babies it will be divorce court for me). One pillow is some kind of pink worm and the other is one of these anime cartoon characters.

Re: Polypells

I am not sure what constitutes expensive ?

Ebay has them 11.5 pounds for 9.99 + 10.00 shipping.

Here we go, ebay.co.uk at ths very moment.

1kg for 4.99, plus 4.95 for postage, thats nearly $9 for both the product and shipping for only just over 2 pounds of pellets [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]

Re: Polypells

Matt,
I presume you want thse pellets for your rear field rest, so you need something with a bit of weight but not heavy.
Sacks of polypropelene pellets of all types are available for the injection moulding business very cheaply.

Ian.
