DIY - Melt your own Diving Weight - Quick release Camouflage

Thank you!

I cannot recommend Germany for Spearfishing, it is simply not allowed ;(, you have to drive to Denmark France or Italy...

When i found more Lead i will build some more Weights but it takes ages to find it with the metaldetector

That's quite a drive.

Another option for finding some lead would be to dive the shores where hook/line guys frequent. So many lost weights there. Plus it works twofold. You get lead and you get to work on your freediving.

So many unsafe practices here in this video I hope nobody follows it. Please do you homework prior to working with lead.

Care to expand on that? Obviously the mask was not the appropriate mask (at least he was outside... I've seen people do it with no mask inside and I think, really?). Could have used better suited gloves as well. I would also not use that torch. Other than that I am not too sure of the other unsafe practices. I am nowhere close to an expert on this so I would like to hear your, or anyone else's, thoughts.
